Stir up the Gift. December 22
Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands. 2 Timothy 1:6
It’s just natural for the good things of God in our lives, to settle to the bottom. This was even so for Timothy who had received, through the laying on of Paul the apostles hands, special gifts. Paul was most likely the greatest Christian of all times. Imagine what it must have been like to have him place his hands on you and pray. Wow! But even he tells Timothy, from time to time you must stir these great gifts of God, up in your life. God has done great things for us, but we also must keep these things stirred up in our lives or they will settle to the bottom and be covered over by the activity of the world around us. Of course we can do this by; prayer, reading Gods word, taking time to meditate on God and his word, gathering together to worship God and be with our brothers and sisters as we listen to Gods message for our lives. Singing spiritual songs is also a great way to stir up Gods spirit in our lives. Praising and thanking God not only blesses Him but also lifts us too. Today stir up the gift of Jesus Christ in your life by spending time With Him.
