“For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.” (2 Timothy 1:7, NIV)

Who doesn’t want power?

Who doesn’t want to be loved?

Who doesn’t want self-discipline?

God’s spirit within us provides the wherewithal to live confidently; to walk boldly; and to control the only thing in this world that we truly have a say about: Our own actions.

It is only through obedience that we release the power of the Holy Spirit — the third Person of the Trinity (Father, Son, Holy Spirit), Who lives within us. Failure to obey the Spirit leads to the same unfruitful ends as failing to obey a road map, or a recipe.  – Luther
