Sermons on 2 Timothy
Too often it is easiest to focus on the negative things in life. We lose focus of what is most important, and we begin to focus on our circumstances. Fear can have some long-reaching consequences, as we will learn from this week’s story.
Have you ever walked into a thick fog? From the outside it looks so dense! Once you step foot inside the fog, you realize it is not what it seemed from the outside. Fear is similar. When we dissect our fears, we will discover that there is no substance to it.
In our series “Fearless” we explore the conflict between fear and faith (or fear and courage). This week we look at the story of Moses and his example.
Through this series we want you to become fearless; or at the very least, that you would fear less.
The spiritual discipline of reading Scripture, or doing devotions, is a major influence on how we grow. 2 Timothy tells us that Scripture is profitable for teaching, reproof, correction, and training in righteousness.
God gave us a gift, a flame, of joy and passion. But we need to fan the flame to keep it hot and growing, “for God gave us a spirit of fear but of power and love and self-control.” Being on fire for God warms and inspires everyone around you!
God is faithful. Even if we are faithless, He remains faithful. Maintain your allegiance with Him, trust Him
