Fear Not | 2 Timothy 1:7 | Devotional
2 Timothy 1:7 For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.
Why can we get so fired up about sports (Go Sooners!!) and become so quiet about the Savior?
Why do we so readily share our political views, but hit the mute button when it comes to sharing Jesus?
Why do we call all our friends to tell them about a great restaurant we found and don’t make the call to tell them about the Redeemer we know?
Why do we show more passion about the new diet, new golf club, new car, new purchase, new hobby, new vacation spot, new movie, new iPhone app, new whatever…than a relationship with Christ?
Why is it easier to talk about anything else…than Jesus?
“For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power…!” If this is true, why do we often feel so wimpy and powerless when it comes to sharing the most important message in time and eternity?
I usually write a prayer in this spot. But I am leaving this prayer to you. Ask God to evaluate your heart. Ask him to reveal your passion points. Admit that you are timid and often feel powerless. Ask him to change that. Ask him to give you an opportunity to talk to someone about him…today.
