// READ: II Timothy 1:1-7 //
1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, in keeping with the promise of life that is in Christ Jesus,
2 To Timothy, my dear son:
Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.
3 I thank God, whom I serve, as my ancestors did, with a clear conscience, as night and day I constantly remember you in my prayers. 4 Recalling your tears, I long to see you, so that I may be filled with joy. 5 I am reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also.
Appeal for Loyalty to Paul and the Gospel
6 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. 7 For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.
You need to develop your mind to be able to function in the capacity that will make your life to be of impact. Why do we need to develop our mind?
1. The soundness of your mind determines the quality of your life – Mark 5:15; II Tim. 1:7
2. Capacity of your mind determines the capacity of your life – John 16:2
3. You need sound mind to interpret the Spirit of Excellence
4. Exploits in life needs strong mind.
Prayer: Pray on these issues.
