This past Sunday, I had the blessing of preaching with my husband, Rev. Shawn Smith on 2 Timothy 1:6-9. Here’s what he has to say about it and our sermon and the link to the video on Vimeo.
If we say we have faith in Christ how do we respond when we are asked what that means? Talking about our faith can be a challenge for many of us. We have been taught from an early age that religion is a private matter. Some of us do not do well in public settings and shy from sharing our voice especially on the topic of what we believe about Jesus. If Jesus died, was buried, and was raised from the dead to defeat sin and death why should we be timid about this amazing work of God? In this sermon Pastor Shawn and Liz Smith https://cupplace.wordpress.com unpack the Apostle Paul’s second letter to Timothy, a young man struggling to bold about his faith in the risen Christ. How might we fan the flame of the risen Christ within us today?
