Part of the Finish The Race series, preached at a Wednesday Evening service

This week we begin a new bible study series on the book of 2 Timothy. We look at the background, author and audience the book of 2nd Timothy was written to. Timothy was encouraged to lead, remember the legacy of faith passed on to him and operate in power and not the spirit of fear.

2 Timothy 1:1-7

1:1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God according to the promise of the life that is in Christ Jesus,

To Timothy, my beloved child:

Grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.

I thank God whom I serve, as did my ancestors, with a clear conscience, as I remember you constantly in my prayers night and day. As I remember your tears, I long to see you, that I may be filled with joy. I am reminded of your sincere faith, a faith that dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, dwells in you as well. 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, for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. (ESV)
