II Timothy 1:7 ” For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.”

As a Believer, you have been given the Spirit of adoption and strength.  No longer are you an orphan,  fearful of tomorrow.  No longer are you a slave to anxiety or dread, for you have been embraced by your Heavenly Father…taken in as family and becoming a joint heir with Jesus.

II Timothy 1:8 ” So do not be ashamed to testify about our Lord…”

Do the people around you even know you’re a Christian?   ” I’ll let my walk do the talking,” you might be saying to yourself right now.  But do you know how many “good” people don’t know Jesus and are going to hell?  To paraphrase Jesus in Mark 8:38, If you’re ashamed of Me, I’ll be ashamed of you.  Why should we be embarrassed to tell others what Jesus has done in our lives?  Our testimony…or our personal story of redemption needs to be something we’re so comfortable  telling others about  that it flows naturally like breathing.  No one can take your testimony from you…it’s totally unique and the supernatural power it has can melt hardened hearts.  Someone around you today needs to hear your testimony…it will change their life forever.  Be brave and declare Jesus as your Lord and Savior.
