2 Timothy 1:1-7

Last Sunday, we came to the end of our series through the book of 1 Timothy, whereas today, we are beginning a series of studies through 2 Timothy. 

In this first study, the first thing that we’ll be doing is seeking to better understand the context, background, and outline of the letter (2 Timothy 1:1-2). From there, we move onto Paul’s words of thanksgiving (2 Timothy 1:3-5), followed by a strong exhortation for Timothy to be bold in his faithful service to God (2 Timothy 1:6-7). God had gifted Timothy, and in a similar way, God has gifted each and every believer for the purpose of exercising that gifting so that the body of Christ is built up in love (Ephesians 4:11-16). 

There are always going to be things that will cause us to pull back from exercising that which God has given to us. Like Timothy, fear can certainly be a cause for this. Read through the passage & discuss with your family how God has gifted you, along with identifying the blessings & the hindrances of exercising that gifting.
