Let's Get Stirred Up

We are having revival at my church this week. Last night the evangelist gave an awesome message. His text was II Timothy 1:6, "Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands."
Paul told Timothy to stir up the gift of God in his life. Apparently Timothy needed a spiritual "pep talk." He needed to be reminded to get excited about what God was doing through him.
At times its easy to get discouraged. Its easy to think that we aren't accomplishing anything. Its easy to sit down and quit. Those are the times we need to be stirred. The times we need to go to God's Word and fall in love once again with the Savior. That's when we need to remember how much He has done for us and get a renewed zeal for the work.
Working for Christ isn't always the easiest path. I mean look at the lives of Jim Eliott or Nate Saint. These missionaries gave their lives for the cause of Christ. Having that kind of faith can't be easy. These men had to live daily for Christ. They had to give the small things to Him. They constantly had to keep their hearts stirred for the work.
Paul wasn't just talking the talk with Timothy. Paul wasn't telling Timothy to do something that he himself wasn't doing. He told Timothy to stir up the gift because he knew that you had to keep a constant fire going in order to be used in the work of Christ.
Last night I was challenged to stir up my own gifts. I was challenged to go back to God's Word to get a fresh excitement.
How about you? Have you let the coals grow cold? Get stirred up today and let's work for Christ!

This Scripture reaffirms an important principle: We have everything we need for life and godliness. But, just like a rich meal, the good stuff sinks to bottom. A good rule is therefore, shake and pour.
