Here is the video and message note from Don’t Frighten Timothy.

This is the outline only.

On Frightening Timothy
It would be a shame to have a dream and not fulfill it because we were afraid.
This Sunday we wrap up our series from 1 Corinthians in a message called “Don’t Frighten Timothy.”
DON’T FRIGHTEN TIMOTHY
If Timothy comes, see to it that he has nothing to fear while he is with you, for he is carrying on the work of the Lord, just as I am. 11 No one, then, should refuse to accept him. Send him on his way in peace so that he may return to me. I am expecting him along with the brothers. 1 Corinthians 16:10-11 (niv)
 
This is more than a 30 minute sermon to fill a space – this is a common known reality we all deal with almost everyday.
FEAR and CREATIVITY – The polar opposites of my personality and maybe yours as well.
 
When it comes to these two real facts in my life I talk to both of them!
 
CREATIVITY – I love your energy and expression. But, I only have a certain amount of time in a day and I need a certain amount of sleep each night……HOLD THAT THOUGHT AND LET ME GET BACK TO YOU TOMORROW ON THAT.
I need to have a GRATITUDE FOR FEAR!
 
FEAR–  “I thank fear for what it has done for me in the past ..Like keeping me from going down a certain street or not driving my car too fast or saying no to the telemarketer who needs my routing number to my checking account.
 
BUT THERE ARE TIMES WHEN I REALLY DONT NEED FEAR AND I HAVE A CONVERSATION LIKE THIS.
Thank you FEAR for everything. But, I really dont need your services right now.Because today I am just writing this sermon.  Today I am just relaxing with this cup of coffee.Im giving you the day off FEAR.”
 
Be grateful for fear  – Bow to fear at the right times. ( we say things like; Im gonna punch fear in the face. – “Kick fears butt – I dont know about you but anytime I have attacked anything.It attacked me right back.

1. IT DOESNT TAKE MUCH TO FRIGHTEN TIMOTHY.
 
Timothy can represent a PERSON or a POSSIBILITY.

Allowing timothy to thrive in his:
Ambitions
Ideals
Dreams

 
2. THE IMPORTANCE OF HAVING “TIMOTHY” AROUND YOU .
 
That NEW thing – That NEW tomorrow – That YOUTHFUL HOPE – That God POSSIBILITY – That thrill of the next thing God has in store for you. – That place were you still believe  the scripture that promises you Behold I am doing a new thing . – Isaiah 43:19
 
Its an evil thing to frighten Timothy. – Its SO easy to do it. 
Timothy is very young and very tender – HE always has been and he always will be!
Timothy has solved the problem of perpetual youthfulness.
He represent the FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH.
He will never grow old. – He refuses to grow old.

If Timothy comes, see to it that he has nothing to fear while he is with you, – 1 Corinthians 16:10-11 (niv)

1. The RARITY of Timothy. “If Timothy comes”. Vs. 10

2. The NEED of Timothy. “SEE TO IT”. VS. 10

3. The TENDENCY of Timothy. “fear while he is with you.” vs. 10

4. The VALUE of Timothy. “he is carrying on the work of the Lord.” vs. 10

5. The CONNECTION of the old and the new. “No one, then should refuse him.” vs.11

3. MOST PEOPLE DIE AT 25 AND AREN’T BURIED UNTIL THEY ARE 75.
Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young , but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity. 1 Timothy 4:12 (niv)

 
Youth – Neotetos – reffering to anyone under 40.
 
EXAMPLE IN SPEECH.
EXAMPLE IN LIFE.
EXAMPLE IN LOVE.
EXAMPLE IN FAITH.
EXAMPLE IN PURITY.
If Timothy comes, see to it that he has nothing to fear while he is with you, for he is carrying on the work of the Lord, just as I am. 11 No one, then, should refuse to accept him. Send him on his way in peace so that he may return to me. I am expecting him along with the brothers. 1 Corinthians 16:10-11 (niv)
