Empowering the Next Generation
Dr. James Taylor
2 Timothy 1:1-18

 

Appreciate Your Past (vv. 1-5)
Appreciate those who have invested in your life
Appreciate your spiritual heritage

“I am reminded of your sincere faith, a faith that dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, dwells in you as well” (2 Timothy 1:5).

Live a Bold Life (vv. 6-14)
God-confidence vs. Self-confidence
A Gospel-centered life

“For God gave us a spirit NOT of fear but of power and love and self-control” (2 Timothy 1:7).

Focus on the Positve (vv. 15-18)
You have a choice…every single day!
Celebrate the good

CHOOSE HAPPINESS

“May the Lord grant mercy to the household of Onesiphorus, for he often refreshed me and was not ashamed of my chains” (2 Timothy 1:16).

*We encourage you to engage scripture personally by doing three very distinct and deliberate things anytime someone presents the Word of God: ask questions, make observations, and find the personal application. There is space provided for your own notes on this section of scripture.
