Scripture for the day

2 Timothy 1:7-10 For God did not give us a spirit [i.e., a disposition] that makes us cowards but one that gives us power and love and self-control. 8 So, do not be ashamed to testify for our Lord, or ashamed of [being associated with] me, His prisoner, but [be willing to] suffer hardship with me for the sake of the Gospel, relying on God’s power [to sustain you].

9 [It is] God who saved us and called us to live holy lives [or, “to be dedicated people”], not as a result of our [good] deeds, but in harmony with His own purpose and unearned favor. [This was] given to us through [the atoning work of] Christ Jesus, before the beginning of time. [Note: Salvation through Christ was planned before time began. See Titus 1:2; Romans 16:25; Ephesians 1:4].

10 But, it has [only] now been made known to us by the appearance of our Savior Christ Jesus, who has put an end to death and brought [never ending] life and incorruption [i.e., immortality] to light through the Gospel [message], 

Thought for the day – Benefits of the Holy Spirit:

The gift of the Holy Spirit will help us remain confident and secure. We live in a time of fear (often encouraged by economic conditions, the media and politicians). Jesus gave us the best gift, the Holy Spirit, that is with us at all times.

Learn to use the Holy Spirit to get through times of discomfort and fear. Be mindful of the benefits of having the power associated with the Holy Spirit. Find comfort in knowing the Holy Spirit is God in us. Blessings to you my friends Tim
