Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
2 Timothy 1:6-7 (NKJV)
World Changer: This second letter to Timothy was the last one Apostle Paul wrote, number thirteen he made it and it is in the New Testament. He is practically saying goodbye to Timothy, his disciple and beloved son in faith because he knew they were going to behead him because he was imprisoned in Rome for the wickedness of the Emperor who hated all Christians.
Paul exhorts this young men that was in charge of the Church of Ephesus to be strengthened in his faith and to fan the fire and his passion for Christ, because it was the inheritance that Paul had given him by the laying on of his hands.
That he did not allow himself at any time to be intimidated by some spirit of cowardice but rather that he sought to fill himself with the power and love of Christ because although afflictions would come because of preaching the gospel, God would keep him and strengthen him by the grace of God that was granted to him. given the day he received Jesus into his heart.
*We Christians of these last times also must fan the fire to serve God as a fruit of love that He placed in our hearts and rebuke any spirit of intimidation that comes to try to interfere with our Christian walk. Like Timothy, God will always strengthen His beloved children who are serving the gospel of Christ.
Today is your day of salvation if you receive Jesus in your heart to be saved and live eternity with Him (Romans 10: 8-13).
Christ in us our hope of glory and our world-changing victory (Colossians 1:27, 1 Corinthians 15:10, 57). Hallelujah.
