2 Timothy 1:7
For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
When young Nelson came home from a birds'-nesting expedition, his aunt chided him for being out so far into the night, and remarked, "I wonder fear did not make you come home." "Fear," said Nelson, "I don't know him." Fit speech for a believer when work ing for God. "Fear? I do not know it! What does it mean?" The Lord is on our side? Whom shall we fear? "If God be for us, who can be against us?"
(C. H. Spurgeon.)
