A Favorite Verse | 2 Timothy 1:7

“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

2 Timothy 1:7 KJV

This is one of my favorite verses in the Bible. It is one of the many verses I memorized as a teenager as a part of my church youth group. My youth pastor always encouraged us to memorize scripture. In fact, he believed in scripture memorization so much, he made it a requirement to attend church camp or any week long youth group activity. We had to recite the assigned memorization scripture before boarding the church bus.

Memorization may seem like an odd requirement to attend a church youth group outing, but it was one aspect that has remained with me for life. I can still recall quite a number of the scripture verses I memorized way back in my youth. I thank God for a youth pastor who always demonstrated his faith and showed everyone he met God’s love and how to walk a godly lifestyle.

Thank you PJ for being a fine example of God’s love and faithfulness. PJ is at home with God the Father, but his faith and example lives on through the many youth and people he ministered to while here.

God bless. What are your favorite Bible verses? I’d love for you to share them. Thank you! Remember I appreciate y’all.
