Conscience, faith, gifts, and deposit

(10/9) |

Verses:2_Timothy 1:1 ~ 1:18
Key Verse:6-7. For which cause I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For God has not given us a spirit of cowardice, but of power and of love and of sobermindedness.
Topic:Conscience, faith, gifts, and deposit
Emphasis:Second Timothy is the last letter written by Paul before his martyrdom. At that time, there was persecution from the Roman authorities externally and distractions from heresies internally. What can we do when facing such difficult environment? First, we need to pay attention to the spirit dwelling in us, by having a pure conscience, unfeigned faith, stirring up the gift of God in us, so we can fulfill the deposit that God entrusted to us.
Meditate:Both the verse 12 and 14 use the word “deposit’, any relationships in here?
Prayer:Lord, please teach me how to deal with the heresy, and be able to live in the spirit of power, and of love, and of sober mindedness.
Hymn:333 I know not why God’s wondrous grace
