Fan The Flame Of Your Gift

 

Some days you just need a good pep talk. 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” (2 Timothy 1:6 NIV2011). We are not very sure of Timothy’s personality, but Paul through the Holy Spirit gave him an energy boast. Paul called it a reminder. Timothy was special to Paul. Paul took a major role in mentoring him. He was the addressee of two letters, and went on to oversee the church at Ephesus.

At some point Paul had laid hands on him and imparted a ministry gift to Timothy. Paul saw something in Timothy that led to a great friendship. What is your gift? You don’t need to have hands laid on you by someone. You get your gifts from God through the Holy Spirit as anyone does. Nevertheless, are you letting the gift go stagnate? If so, fame the flame. Don’t let it go out. King James says stir it up. Whatever your gifting’s are, use them to the glory of God. He has chosen you for a special reason, so keep the flame burning brightly.
