Boldness is defined as not hesitating or fearful, in the face of actual or possible danger or rebuff; it also means to be courageous and daring. In this day of ungodliness, in a world that wants to see the Word of God censored, not taught, or in a society that teaches that somehow success is bad, if you believe in absolute truth, you are crazy and out of touch. It’s no wonder Christian’s are shrinking back and becoming more and more silent on the world’s stage. When you go against mainstream society or the politically correct crowd, you get blasted with words such as hater, intolerant and old fashioned. What we need, to fight the temptation to be silent, is boldness. We need to be courageous to stand up and exercise our free speech rights to proclaim the Good News about Jesus the Savior of all humanity, the only Savior. Acts 4:12 clearly states, “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”
It’s time that we rise up, begin to share our faith, and let people know that Jesus loves them and wants to help them. If they are willing to follow his ways, He will save them from an eternal death of punishment and torment. Let’s all stand up and begin to share the Good News with those people, in our lives. Let’s begin to invite our friends and family to Church. Let’s ask God to give us boldness so that we won’t ever be silenced. People will come to church if someone they know will invite them. When they come, they will hear that there is hope for a better life, through Jesus Christ, the only Savior of the world. An empty seat is a serious matter. Let’s fill our church this Easter and resurrection Sunday, and give people an opportunity to say yes to the one true hope, Jesus Christ.
Just a Thought,
