and of self-discipline. So do not be ashamed to testify about our Lord, or ashamed of me his prisoner. But join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God who has saved us and called us to a holy life--not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace." 2 Timothy 1:6-9a Paul and the elders of the church had laid hands on Timothy and prayed over him to ordain him into ministry. Paul instructs Timothy to "fan into flame the gift of God" to encourage him to look to God for guidance so that he can use his gift as God intended him to and to draw strength, power, love and self-discipline that can only come from God.
Short Catch to get audience attention: Greetings my brothers and sisters in the Lord. It is of great opportunity to share a message with you. The word might be for everyone, but someone will receive something based on their own circumstances. Let us stand for the reading of the Word of God. A.

Jesus’ last declaration to His disciples was “Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely, I am with you always, to the very end of the age (Matthew 28:19-20, NIV).” This statement echoes true even today. In order to make disciples one cannot simply go around and just yell “JESUS LOVES YOU BECOME A CHRISTIAN OR BURN IN HELL”. This would not be an effective way to make disciples because of emotional intelligence. One needs to establish relationships with people and be a good example of God’s love and slowly at the proper time share the
Holy Week and Easter Triduum: time to accompany and join the suffering Christ who goes up to Jerusalem to be condemned and die for us. It is time to read the passion of Christ, described by the Gospels, and thus to be tuned into the same feelings of Jesus Christ, to enter into his heart and to accompany him in his pain, asking for forgiveness for our sins. These days are not days to go to beaches or mundane diversions. It is a Holy Week to live it in our churches, together with the Christian community, participating in the divine services, praying and meditating the mysteries of our salvation: Christ suffers, suffers and dies for us to save us and reconcile us with his Father and thus earn us the heaven that was closed, because of sin, of our
This passage gives us a challenge to us as Christians to preach the good news of Christ every day, everywhere and helps though saying I will repent tomorrow no one about next day only Christ.

The good place is there but for those doing and following the will of God, so men’s of Athens they supposed to give more thanks to God sent Paul to them. Because we are now living in world full with works of devil needs the grace of God daily for us to survive, without it we die. Through his teachings Paul told them about the resurrection Jesus Christ that they mighty repent and believe in him.
My faith is my strength. Thus, I am here to touch everyone and witness to his holy love for you all. Since that moment only a few, the spirit has sent me too have rejected his message. This is why I pray without cease My God has revealed all to me. Yet I am here and I will follow without deviation from his holy plan.
You all are with so much of energy, happiness, and vibrancy today, to hear from the word. As we try to meditate today on the Lord's word, let's turn our Bible to the Book of Habakkuk, chapter 2 verses 1-14. Let's all bow down our heads and pray to the God for his holy presence. The most important struggle, you all face at this time in your generation is to stand righteous in your schools, colleges, communities, among friend’s and in different circles of life. Let’s see, to get a small
Other areas. God can show His plans for us through other means, through friends and family – through current circumstance and even through visions and dreams. Note - these areas are subjective - carefully appraise these areas through scripture / prayer etc. And, like Abram, God has a plan for each of us. I urge you to explore those areas just mentioned and ask God again and again who He wants us to be for Him as that can be specific for each of us.
In the book of Galatians, Paul identifies specific gifts the believer receives from the Holy Spirit when they decide to surrender their life and follow God. Paul describes these gifts as fruit in the life of the believer, refined through a continual walk with God. In order to equip the believer, God provides the believer these gifts. Faithfulness is one of these gifts. A common misconception of faith in God is the belief He fixes what is wrong in our lives.
