09/04 2 Timothy 1:7
For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. 8 So never be ashamed to tell others about our Lord. And don’t be ashamed of me, either, even though I’m in prison for him. With the strength God gives you, be ready to suffer with me for the sake of the Good News. 9 For God saved us and called us to live a holy life. He did this, not because we deserved it, but because that was his plan from before the beginning of time—to show us his grace through Christ Jesus.
Do not let the world define you. Forget its abuse of you. Accept what Jesus gives you-His power, His love, His self-discipline and be encouraged as you live a holy life. Jesus loves you because He chose to love you not because of the things you do.
