"For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love, and self-discipline." 2 Timothy 1:7
VBS will begin this morning at Start Baptist Church. We are excited about the opportunity to teach many children about the great God who loves us and empowers us to live godly lives! This year's theme is "Colossal Coaster: Facing Fear, Trusting God!" It is based off this verse of Scripture in 2 Timothy 1:7. Paul tells us that God gave us His Spirit, and God's Spirit doesn't make us timid or fearful; on the contrary, His Spirit gives us POWER! His Spirit give us LOVE! His Spirit gives us SELF-DISCIPLINE! Paul goes on to say in 2 Timothy 2:1, "You then, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus." We want our children to grow up in the fear of the Lord. We want our children to grow up in the power, the love, and the self-discipline of the Holy Spirit, who indwells us. We can't live this kind of life on our own. We must live this life in the grace that comes only through Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior! By trusting in Jesus, God gives us His Spirit, and we can live lives of impact that will make a difference in the world we live in! Embrace Jesus today! Embrace the power of the Holy Spirit who live in you today! Be a person of power, love and self-discipline!
