MAIN TEXT: 2 TIMOTHY 1:7 – “For this reason I remind you to fan into the flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands”.
THE GIFT OF GOD
First, the “gift of God.” There are various hints in the immediate context that suggest that the “gift” Timothy possesses is the gift of preaching and teaching. Timothy should not be ashamed of the testimony about his Lord (v. 8); he is to suffer for the gospel with Paul (v. 8); and Timothy is to “keep the pattern of sound teaching” that he heard from Paul (v. 13).
Timothy is to endure with boldness in the task of gospel proclamation and teaching—the “gift of God” should be understood in relation to that task. 1 Timothy 4:13–14. Our response to the salvation call ignites the gifts of God in every believer.
God calls everyone and bestows gifts to the person. Discovering and developing them is important for a good success.
