Sometimes we are not as bold as we should be when it comes to living out this Christian walk of love and faith. Other times, we become intimidated by the world and hold back words to witness to a dying generation that Jesus saves.
The Apostle Paul asked for prayer, that while he was in bonds as an ambassador of Jesus Christ, he might speak boldly…as he should.
Ephesians 6:19 And [pray] for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
We should or ought to speak boldly when it comes to God’s Word. There is no reason for us to fear or be ashamed of the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ.
Whether we work in the realm of fashion, art, music, natural or behavioral sciences, mathematics or a vocational field, we need not shrink back because we are Christians.
I follow Christ. I am a spiritual Jew, as the Scriptures and evidence of the Holy Ghost proclaim that I am. I shine in color and boldness. There is nothing dry, unsaturated, dull or timid about this walk.
Romans 2:29 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.
What about you? Are you a shrinking violet or are you shining in color and boldness?
Be bold. Live your life in color and shine on!
