Fear and Timidity? I don't think so. {2 Timothy 1:7}

Verse: For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love and self-discipline. 2 Timothy 1:7

Main Idea: This verse is a great ending to this theme!  Are you someone who worries daily about those "little things" that add up to make you feel frozen at times in your life?  Do you tend to take big risks or play it safe?  Are you more adventurous or more controlling?  We worship a God who is BIGGER than any of our day-to-day struggles.  God has given us His power, we don't need to worry about anything, because God already knows what is going to happen and has already planned how He is going to help us.

2} What is the difference between fear or timidity and power, love or self-discipline?  How has God given these things to us? {When we become Christians, He gives us His Holy Spirit who fills us with power, love and self-discipline.}
3} How does it make you feel to know that God is on your side?  Can you think of a time where you felt afraid or shy?  How can God help you in those moments to be less afraid?
4}  Why do you think God gives us a spirit of power, love and self-discipline?  How do those things help us?  What do those things look like in our lives?
5} Sometimes God calls us to tell other people about Him.  How do those gifts (power, love and self-discipline) help us tell other people about God?
6}  How can we ask God to help us when we feel afraid?   How can we show other people the security we have because of God?
