For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline. 2 Timothy 1:7
When the Church is timid, society loses its prophetic voice. Consider, for example, the tragedy of a sex-saturated culture. Disease, divorce and death run rampant when sexual behavior is unrestrained. Despite the fact that sex is depicted, discussed and deliberated non-stop in popular media, many churches are silent. God invented sexuality and meant it to be a blessing. He has promised His people power, love and discipline, not timidity. Jesus’ followers shouldn’t shy away from any topic because the need for truth is vital.
