Be Bold!

Freedom! William Wallace was not afraid to claim it in the movie “Braveheart.” Our founding fathers were not afraid to declare it for our nation on July 4, 1776. And the Lord says that the greatest kind of freedom possible is ours:

“…the truth will set you free”
John 8:32

“All are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.”
Romans 3:24

“But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life.”
Romans 6:22

“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.”
Romans 8:1-2

“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.”
Galatians 5:1

Are you proclaiming these truths in your life? People should never doubt where our faith lies. We’re not secret agents. No way! Along with our friendliness and genuine concern and caring actions, we’re to be bold. We’re to be outspoken about our faith in Jesus Christ. And we should faithfully pray for the opportunities to introduce our friends to the Savior. There’s no greater gift than sharing the salvation offered through Jesus.

It was the apostle Paul’s desire “that God would open to us a door for the word, to speak the mystery of Christ” (Colossians 4:3). Paul wanted to declare Christ openly to as many people as possible.

I encourage you to study God’s Word and meet with other Christians so you can be prepared for questions people may have regarding Jesus. You don’t have to know everything, but be comfortable with a few facts about your faith in Him. Then reach out with the true gospel and offer freedom to those who are seeking!

A Prayer to Pray

Lord, I want other people to experience Your love and have Your promise of eternal life through Christ. Show me people I can minister to, help me be prepared, and give me the words to speak. Amen.
