Power, Love, and a Sound Mind


For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control].  
- 2 Timothy 1:7 (AMP)

Love looks like the Holy Spirit. What does that look like in our personal lives? I'm reminded of this particular verse that Paul wrote in encouragement to Timothy. In this verse, he mentioned three attributes the Holy Spirit gives us. 

John Gill's commentary explains each attribute quite clearly:

Spirit of Power — we are strengthened by the Spirit's power to resist temptation or endure hardship. This power also allows us to overcome. 

Spirit of Love — also a fruit of the Spirit, to be able to love not for our own sake or credit but the glory of God and and interest of Christ. We are not intimidated but brave to love out of our comfort and convenience.

Spirit of Sound Mind/Self-control — the Spirit gives us wisdom and discernment to maintain control in moments where emotions may overwhelm and cloud our better judgement. Whether fear or anger, the Holy Spirit grounds us in the truth of God's Word and promises. The Spirit disciplines our thoughts and mind. 

In times of adversity, moments of weakness or fear, we are reminded that the Holy Spirit is always with us, ever ready to aid us in time of need. While being encouraged and reminded is great, we ought to also utilise and act upon what the Spirit says we have - to live boldly for Christ, to trust and ask the Holy Spirit to lead and guide us in all that we have to accomplish and do. 

Even in our daily lives, when we are not facing any difficult situation, we must remember the Holy Spirit is with us to lead us in paths of righteousness. 

Blessings,

Victoria, Ying Chuan, and Kaia



UPPER EAST COAST CAMPUS

Love Looks Like The Holy Spirit 
Dates: 15 Sept - 6 Oct
English Service - 10:15am | Level 4, Sanctuary
Chinese Service - 9am | Level 3, Thanksgiving Hall


Throughout the Bible, metaphors have been used to describe and provide clarity about the Holy Spirit. Metaphors suggest to our inner self, something that is true about a deeper reality. God Himself uses several metaphors to describe the Holy Spirit. This new series promises to draw us into deeper intimacy with the Holy Spirit.

EVERITT ROAD NORTH CAMPUS

// Un | Qualified – Excuses We Hide Behind
Date: 1 Sept - 6 Oct
English Service: 9am | Sanctuary

Many of us don’t believe we have the qualification to be used by God. Some of us don’t even believe we are worthy to be called His children. In this series we will look at into the life of Moses and the excuses he used when God called him and these excuses we hide behind even today and to be reassured that we are indeed Qualified and empowered by the Most High.
