Keep the Gift Alive

21 06 2011

For this reason I remind you to keep alive the gift that God gave you when I laid my hands on you. For the Spirit that God has given us does not make us timid; instead, his Spirit fills us with power, love, and self-control.  II Timothy 1:6-7

Our gracious Father has blessed each believer with a gift. It is wonderful to know that despite our shared humanity that we each have a unique gift and ability that God has endowed in us. Each gift is precious and each gift plays an essential role within the Body of Christ. Our everyday life can be full of busy, where expressing or using our gift becomes an elusive priority. The dynamics of the times can also mislead us into allowing fear to become dominant in our thinking. This passage reminds us of the importance of keeping the Gift alive and that we should move in the confidence of the Holy Spirit which provides – power, love and self-control.

Today, we are praying for us to be reminded of God’s gift in us and that we can walk in confidence with power, love and discipline to fully expressing this gift in God’s service.
