POWER LOVE AND A SOUND MIND
Distress, anxiety, faint-heartedness and cowardice are not what God desires for His children.
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and a sound mind.” (2Tim.1:7).
During these end times, Believers every where will need to keep their eyes firmly fixed on Jesus. In the face of a world that opposes the gospel, the children of God will need fortitude and courage. It is the power of God that enables the Believer to stay in the faith, even when there is every reason to give up the faith. He gives courage during distressing times.
The love of God has been poured into our hearts by the Holy Spirit (Romans 5:5). This love gives us the ability to serve God wholeheartedly. It enables us love our brothers and sisters in Christ. This love reaches out to a hostile world, in desperate need of Christ. It does not fear man (Psalm 118:6, Rom.8:31). The love of God compels us to share the Good News, with courage, to a lost generation.
Peace is a gift from God. Jesus Christ paid such a heavy penalty for our freedom. Because of Him we have a sound mind. The peace God reigns, regardless of the environment, situation or circumstance .
May the peace of God, which surpasses all human understanding, guard your heart and mind through Christ Jesus (Phil.4:7).
