The wicked flee when no one pursues, But the righteous are bold as a lion. Proverbs 28:1
One thing I think the Christian Church needs more of today is boldness. Especially in todays world of “political correctness” many Christians have become silent or in hiding concerning social issues. But the Bible tells us to be as “Bold as Lions”
If you study the early Church, they were very bold. In fact many of them lost their lives because of the deepness of their faith. Because of their boldness, the gospel message spread throughout the world. Non believers like to call Christianity a Western Religion, however its further from the truth. The Gospel started in Israel and spread throughout the entire world due to the boldness of Jesus disciples
Many Christians may feel overwhelmed or defenceless in this wicked world today, however remember you have the Holy Spirit living inside of you. You have the power of the Living God strengthening you every step you go. You worship a Risen Savior who defeated sin and death and overcame the world already, be bold brother or sister
When Peter began street preaching after Pentecost, the Bible says “They seen the boldness of Peter and John” (Acts 4:13) Who was there audience, the high priests, the rulers, the elders, but two uneducated men stood up and declared “Salvation is only by the name of Jesus” (Acts 4:12) Many came to Christ, why? Because Peter preached with boldness of the Holy Spirit. He didnt have any degrees behind his name or a fancy title. He had the Living God inside of him and that was enough
So next time your talking to an unbeliever, be Bold as a Lion and declare that Jesus is the only way to Salvation, Amen!
