[CF Devotionals] 2016-04-08 - Top Ten Verses

Verse Three & Four

- - - - - - -

This week, I’m continuing with my ten favorite verses. Some of these verses, I have used in devotionals or messages, but I’m resisting the urge to expound on them too much - as I want them to stand alone, with as little commentary as possible.

  • Number 3

    2 Timothy 1:6-7 (NIV)

    For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands. 7 For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.

    This verse has become a key verse for me in youth ministry, for several years now. How Paul mentored Timothy was a great thing. Timothy served with him and learned from him, as Timothy was undoubtedly discipled and sat under Paul's preaching.

  • Number 4

    Hebrews 12:29 - For our God is a consuming fire. (NKJV)

    Those of you paying attention may be picking up on a fire theme to my verses. This is why. If God is a consuming fire, shouldn't our lives be consumed, and spreading the fire more and more? We should love to spread the fire - to share God with others.

Until next time.
