Donít let fear stop you

ĎKindle afresh the gift of God which is in you.í
2 Timothy 1:6 NASB

Donít let fear make you hide your talents and abilities. One Christian author says: ĎGod expects us to make the most of what He gives usÖto keep our hearts aflame, grow our character and personality, and broaden our experiences so weíll be increasingly more effective. Paul told the Philippians, ďKeep on growing in knowledge and understandingĒ (Philippians 1:9 NLT).

And he told Timothy, ďBe sure to use the abilities God has given youÖPut [them] to workĒ (1 Timothy 4:14-15 TLB); ďKindle afresh the gift of God which is in you.Ē When you donít exercise your muscles, they weaken and atrophy, and when you donít utilise the skills God gave you, the same thing happens. Referring to the servant who because of fear hid his talent in the ground, Jesus said, ďTake the talent from him and give it to the one who has the ten talentsĒ (Matthew 25:28 NIV 1984 Edition).

 Donít be afraid. Put your gifts and abilities to work and theyíll become enlarged and developed through practice. No one reaches full development all at once. But with study, feedback, and practice, a good teacher can become a better teacher, and in time grow to be a great teacher. Stretch yourself. Learn all you can. ďConcentrate on doing your best for God, work you wonít be ashamed ofĒ (2 Timothy 2:15 MSG). Take advantage of every opportunity to develop and sharpen your skills. Remember, in heaven weíre going to serve God forever, and we prepare by practising here on earth. Like athletes getting ready for the Olympics, weíre training for the big day.í
