 Read: 2 Timothy 1:1-18

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline. — 2 Timothy 1:7

Often times we are too scared to share our faith.  We think, "What will others think?"; or "Will I offend them?"; or any number other rationalizations involving what others think of us.  God's Word is clear.  We are not to be timid.  In fact, in today's verse, we are told point blankly that timidity is from Satan, not from God (2 Timothy 1:7).
The Heavenly Father wants to reach the world with His grace. That in turn means, we start with those around us.  Our friends and family. Telling them about our faith.  About Jesus.  We tell them what God our Father has done for us, through His Son Jesus Christ. Then we expand and tell others in our city and state (or region if you will).  Then we without hesitation take that message to the world. As we offer ourselves to be used, the Holy Spirit, which we received when we became Christians, will go with us, to help us to be bold and to speak the truth.
