Daily word for 21 February 2017 – 2 Timothy 1:7-8
Dear brothers and sisters,
Today I want to encourage you with the words from 2 Timothy 1:7-8 (NIV):
7 For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. 8 So do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord or of me his prisoner. Rather, join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God.
As a Christian you should not be afraid to suffer, because God is always with you! God will reward you for your suffering. And know that we did not receive the Holy Spirit to be timid, but to give us power! And also love and self-discipline. Know that you don’t have to have love and self-discipline on your own strength, because you have received it through the Holy Spirit!
