2 Timothy 1:6-7

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

Here, in the Apostle Paul's last letter before being put to death, he writes to Timothy, the young man that Paul has faithfully mentored and loved like a son.

Timothy had been empowered by the Holy Spirit (1 Timothy 4:13-14) to carry on the work that God had called him to. Paul's concern was that time and circumstance would conspire to cool the flame of Timothy's zeal.

What a wonderful reminder to Timothy, and today to you and me, that now is the time to rekindle the flame that God has lit within us. Ask the Lord to add more fuel and get ready to move ahead with the fire of His Spirit burning inside. It's His gift to us, His calling upon our lives, His joy to keep it aflame, and our privilege to step out with power, love, and a sound mind. Let's leave fear behind, as we invite the Lord to take our lives and make us useful men and women for the Kingdom of Heaven.
