Paul was faithful and courageous and encouraging to his young friend Timothy. Even though Paul was facing conviction and execution, he still had time to send off a positive letter to Timothy.
How could someone be so positive when being faced with this knowledge?
Simple 2 Timothy 1:7 “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power and of love and of a sound mind”
How do we know when we have the spirit and we when we don’t?
Using a talk by John H. Groberg called Investing for Eternity we were able to figure it out.
I took the section of his talk on Having the spirit/not having spirit and made my class an scripture insert.
Easy to do, just copy, paste and make it the size that will fit in your scriptures.
