2 Tim 1
 For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands.
Timothy was a gifted teaching pastor. He was probably a little timid and Paul tells him to be bold with his gifting. To fan into flame the gift of God, which is in him.
God has given us each spiritual gifts and calls on us to use them to glorify Him. Knowing this, if we don’t use our gifts in this manner we are being disobedient. Not only should we not let our spiritual gifts go to waste, we should use them boldly. Stepping out to lead, serve, teach, give – using whatever our individual gifts are. We are called to step out of our comfort zones, fan our gifts into flame and use them boldly.
Lord, thank You for sending Your Spirit to dwell within us and for giving us the gifts you have. Let us be bold in using our gifts to further Your kingdom and glorify Your name. Amen.
