2ND TIMOTHY 1:5 TEXT.

WHEN I CALL TO REMEMBRACE THE UNFEIGNED FAITH THAT IS IN THEE WHICH DWELT FIRST IN THY GRANDMOTHER:LOIS AND THY MOTHER EUNICE:AND I AM PERSUADED THAT IN THEE ALSO.

INTRO. MANY PEOPLE IN OUR CHURCHES HAVE PROFESSED FAITH IN CHIRST AND JOINED THE CHURCH AND FOR A BRIEF TIME THEY WERE FAITHFUL.THEN THEY BECAME INDIFFERENT AND NEGECTED THE LORD AND THE CHURCH.THE SAD RESULT IT BLOCKS THE ROAD TO SALVTION FOR COUNTLESS PERSONS.

THANK GOD IT WAS NOT THAT WAY WITH PAUL.HE WENT TO LYSTRA AND PREACHED THE GOSPEL.GOD OPENED THE HEART OF A LADY NAME LOIS,AND SHE BELIEVED AND WAS SAVED. SHE HAD THE KIND OF FAITH THAT WAS CONTAGIOUS AND SOON HER DAUGHTER EUNICE WAS SAVED.SHE PASSED ON THE FAITH TO HER SON,TIMOTHY AND HE BECAME A CO-LABORER WITH PAUL IN THE WORK OF WORLD EVAVGELIZATION.LATER ,WHEN PAUL WROTE TO TIMOTHY HE DESCRIBED THIS FAITH WORTH PASSING ON.

LET"S TALK ABOUT FOR THE NEXT FEW MOMENTS ABOUT FAITH WORTH PASSING ON.

OUTLINE,

1.FAITH WORTH PASSING ON ORIGINATES IN A PERSONAL EXPERIENCE WITH CHIRST.

PAUL HAD BEEN SAVED ,THEN LOIS WAS SAVED ,IN THIS CHAIN OF EVANGELISM EACH LINK IS A FRESH EXPERIENCE OF SALVTION IN CHIRST.THIS IS ALWAYS THE STARTING PLACE.

JOHN 3:7 MARVEL NOT THAT I SAID UNTO THEE YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN.

2.FAITH WORTH PASSING ON HAS A FAITHFULNESS ABOUT IT.

IN OUR TEXT VERSE 2ND TIMOTHY 1:5 NOTE THE WORD (UNFEIGNED FAITH)IT MEANS WITH NO PRETENSE.IT IS TOTALLY SINCERE WITH NO HYPOCRISY.

SO OUR FAITH MUST BE COMPLETELY SINCERE. WE MUST BE THE SAME ON WEEKDAYS AS WE ARE ON SUNDAY,(AMEN TO THAT)

3.FAITH WORTH PASSING ON HAS A FEARLESSNESS ABOUT IT.

2ND TIMOTHY 1:7 FOR GOD HATH NOT GIVEN US THE SPIRT OF FEAR :BUT OF POWER ,AND OF LOVE AND A SOUND MIND.

TO BE DOMINATED BY FEAR IS A PARALYZING EXPERIENCE.FAITH MY FRIEND IS TRUST WITHOUT RESERVATIONS.GODS LOVE OVERCOMES FEAR FOR THERE IS NO FEAR IN LOVE BUT PERFECT LOVE CASTETH OUT FEAR 1ST JOHN 4:18. YOUNG TIMOTHY WAS A PASTOR IN A LARGE CITY WHERE PERSECUTION WAS A REEL POSSIBILITY. BUT HE COULD SERVE WITHOUT FEAR.

PSALMS 27:1 THE LORD IS MY LIGHT AND MY SALVATION:WHOM SHALL I FEAR THE LORD IS THE STRENGHT OF MY LIFE OF WHOM SHALL BE AFRAID.

4.FAITH WORTH PASSING ON HAS A FORCEFULNESS ABOUT IT.

LOOK AGAIN IN 2ND TIMOTHY 1:7

IT IS THE FORCEFULNESS OF POWER,LOVE AND A SOUNDMIND.

%%(POWER) THIS IS THE WORD WE GET THE ENGLISH WORD DYNAMITE AND WHICH REFERS TO THE INNATE POWER OF ALMIGHTY GOD ,, THAT DIVINE POWER OUR LORD HAS MADE AVAILABLE TO US ,HIS CHILDREN.

%%%(LOVE) GODS KIND OF LOVE IS NOT ONLY POWERFUL BUT IT IS THE GUIDING FORCE FOR POWER HE GIVES US. IT IS UNLIMITED IN ITS USE ONLY BY LOVE.

%% (SOUNMIND)IT IS THE FORCEFULNESS OF UNLIMITED POWER ,LIMITED IN ITS USE BY LOVE ,AND GUIDED INITS SERVICE BY THE KIND OF SOUND MIND THAT ONLY GOD CAN

GIVE.

5.FAITH WORTH PASSING ON HAS A FRUITFULNESS ABOUT IT.

WHEN SEVERAL CASES OF CHICKEN POX ARE REPORTED IN A SCHOOL NO PROMTION CAMPAIGN IS NEEDED TO SPREAD CKICKEN POX.IT SPREADS BECAUSE THERE IS EXPOSURE AND IT IS CONTAGIOUS.IT IS THE SAME WAY WITH FAITH IN CHIRST THAT IS TRANSPARENTLY LOYAL AND CONSTANT.
