The Flame, The Gift & The Guard - 23 February 2020 -Clayton Nel

  1. 1. The Flame The Gift & The Guard
  2. 2. 2 Timothy 1:6-14 (NIV) 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. For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. So do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord or of me His prisoner. Rather, join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God.
  3. 3. 2 Timothy 1:6-14 (NIV) He has saved us and called us to a holy life - not because of anything we have done but because of His own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time, but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Saviour, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. And of this gospel I was appointed a herald and an apostle and a teacher.
  4. 4. 2 Timothy 1:6-14 (NIV) That is why I am suffering as I am. Yet this is no cause for shame, because I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him until that day. What you heard from me, keep as the pattern of sound teaching, with faith and love in Christ Jesus.
  5. 5. 2 Timothy 1:6-14 (NIV) Guard the good deposit that was entrusted to you - guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in us.
  6. 6. Fan the Flames v6 – Fan into flame the gift of God
  7. 7. You owe the world an encounter with God
  8. 8. “The Western Cape has the highest 12-month and lifetime prevalence of mental illness in SA at 39%” - Western Cape Burden of Disease Reduction report 2016
  9. 9. Find the Gift v6 – Fan into flame the gift of God. v6 – Which is in you through the laying on of my hands. v9 – He has saved us and called us to a holy life – not because of anything we have done but because of His own purpose and grace.
  10. 10. Guard the Good Deposit v14 – Guard the good deposit that was entrusted to you. v14 – Guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in us. v12 – I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him until that day.
  11. 11. Guard the Good Deposit Guard [verb] 1. Watch over in order to protect or control. 2. Protect against damage or harm. [Protect, keep an eye on, cover, patrol, defend, shield, safeguard, preserve, fortify, garrison]
  12. 12. Proverbs 4:23 (NIV) Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.
  13. 13. Luke 6:45 (NIV) A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.
  14. 14. Fan the Flame Find the Gift Guard the Deposit
  15. 15. “To help another person grow, You have to pay a price; It takes the giving of yourself, And that means sacrifice.”
