2 Timothy 1:6-7 – Fan Your Gift into Flames

Today’s Reading: Jeremiah 39:1‐41:18, 2 Timothy 1:1‐18, Psalm 90:1‐91:16, Proverbs 26:1‐2

Context: As Paul opens his letter to Timothy he challenges him to guard what has been entrusted to him. 

2 Timothy 1:6-7  “For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands, for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.”

Observations:

  • Fan into flame the gift of God
  • God gave us a spirit not of fear
    • but of power
    • and love
    • and self-control

Apply:  I must not shy away from using and growing the gift that God has given me.  God desires for me to look for ways that I can fan my gift into flames.

Are you fanning your gift into flames?
