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.
All verses are from the King James Version (KJV) unless otherwise noted.
