Stir Up the Gift

14  Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery.
– 1Ti 4:14

  7  For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
– 2Ti 1:7

  17  And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
– Ro 8:17

  19  What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
– 1Co 6:19

  19  Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum, I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.
– Ro 15:19

Sound mind, disciplined mind.
Think good things, think on God things.

  5  Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
– 2Co 10:5

Walk in the joy of the Lord.

– Ne 8:10

    I definitely think it is important, as Christians, to make sure we express the joy that Jesus gives us every day. I wonder though, if as a Christian, there is ever a day we don’t feel the joy (if we take time to reflect on it). What I mean is, we don’t handle life circumstances the same as people who don’t know Jesus, kind of like, we don’t grieve like those who have no hope. Even if we ever become worried or concerned, the reality that we have someone greater to go to is, in itself, comforting, even if for the worried Christian, only a little. Do we show the joy? Not like we should. For the melancholy, it’ll take effort, for the choleric, it’ll take effort, but if made aware, I believe it is our duty to rejoice, and rejoicing is a song, a smile, a laugh, kindness, goodness…

    Thank you for this very encouraging reminder!
