2 Timothy 1:6-7
For this reason, I am reminding you to fan the flame of God’s gift, which you received through s’mikhah from me. For God gave us a Spirit who produces not timidity, but power, love and self-discipline.
Adonai gives us gifts with which to tell others of His kingdom. These gifts are not to set dormant in a shelf until so feast day or used only once a week and then forgotten. We are to use them every day so that the Spirit can grow them in us so that we reach more people with God’s love. Lord let me focus every day upon You so that all may come to know Your Word in their hearts. I ask this in Yeshua’s name, amen.
1 Timothy 1:4-7
Have them stop devoting their attention to myths and never-ending genealogies; these divert people to speculating instead of doing God’s work, which requires trust. The purpose of this order is to promote love from a clean heart, from a good conscience and from sincere trust. Some, by aiming amiss, have wandered off into fruitless discussion. They want to be teachers of Torah, but they understand neither their own words nor the matters about which they make such emphatic pronouncements.
As believers it is of the utmost importance that we read and re-read the Word. Only then can we discern through some of the gobbledygook that is out there whether a person is speaking truth or just trying to gain false honor. Lord keep me from such pratter and convict me when I get pompous, let all I do serve You. I ask this in Yeshua’s name, amen.
