“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.” 2 Timothy 1:6-7 (ESV)
I love the imagery here. The raw energy behind the elemental strength of fire. It’s eagerness to spread quickly from a tiny spark into a huge conflagration.
This is perhaps the reason I want to start this new blog. So I can fan into flame the gift God has graciously given me.
It’s too easy to hide behind a mask. To pretend to be someone or something we’re not. Or simply denying who we really are.
Afraid of what people might say. What they might do. How they might treat us.
But I’m a Christian and there’s no reason to be ashamed of the gospel.
It has the power to heal. To redeem and restore. To renew and regenerate.
To save lives.
prayer : that I would be bold in proclaiming my faith
action : “love” others through the gift God has granted to me
