‘…the Spirit gives us power, love and self-control…’ (2 Tim. 1:7)

Often when we think of power we think of something that equates to a show of strength and sadly we see power exercised selfishly in this kind of way so often in our world today, in a way whereby those exercising it show very little regard for others as they do so. Here, however, Paul reminds us that when it comes to God’s Holy Spirit, power is associated with characteristics such as love and self-control, and when we demonstrate characteristics such as these we are walking in the footsteps our our Saviour.
