By God's grace and work in our lives, may we all aspire to and realize every aspect of this verse this year and live it more fully than we every have before in our Christian walk. May this be true for the whole Body of Christ.
Amen, amen, and amen.
2 Timothy 1:7
For God has not given us a spirit of fear,
but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity,
but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.
For God has not given us a spirit of timidity,
but of power and love and discipline.
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity
(of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear),
but [He has given us a spirit]
of power and of love and
of calm and well-balanced mind
and discipline and self-control.
God doesn't want us to be shy with his gifts,
but bold and loving and sensible.
