2 Timothy 1:6-8 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Timothy and the Holy Spirit

I’m writing to encourage you to fan into a flame and rekindle[a] the fire of the spiritual gift God imparted to you when I laid my hands upon you. For God will never give you the spirit of fear,[b] but the Holy Spirit who gives you mighty power, love, and self-control.[c] So never be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor be embarrassed over my imprisonment, but overcome every evil by the revelation of the power of God![d]


  1. 2 Timothy 1:6 Literally “excite the gift” or “awake the gift.”
  2. 2 Timothy 1:7 That is, fearing men. The fear of God prevents us from fearing others.
  3. 2 Timothy 1:7 The Aramaic can also be translated “revelation-light,” or “instruction.”
  4. 2 Timothy 1:8 Or “with the gospel and the power of God.”
