I am really humbled by the fact that I have the amazing privilege to be able to learn from God’s word and then share it with others. I taught today at Hope on 2 Timothy 1:7. It says:

For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love and self-discipline.

I spent the entire time today unpacking this one incredibly powerful scripture. The truth found here has genuinely changed me on the inside. I shared some really personal things today that I’ve never shared publicly. Even though it’s tough to be transparent in front of crowds of people, I want people to see that God is working in me (and on me), not just through me.

I will post a link to our podcast when it’s ready (probably Tuesday afternoon). It’s one of those messages that I hope everybody can learn from the truth of God’s word. Just as light and dark cannot co-exist, neither can God’s word and fear. God’s word always trumps fear.
