BEING BOLD FOR CHRIST

July 2, 2014

Wednesday

 

1 Thessalonians 2:2

 

But even after that we had suffered before, and were shamefully entreated, as ye know, at Philippi, we were bold in our God to speak unto you the gospel of God with much contention.

 

EXAMPLE

 

So many Christians never achieve the maximum potential in their lives because they never conquer the thing they fear the most.

-Jonathan Falwell

 

LESSON  

 

This text teaches us why boldness is so necessary, and where you get it, and what has to happen inside in order to be a bold person. If you have a longing to be an influence for Christ and his kingdom, and if you have a longing to be a free and authentic person, then the answers to these three questions will ring as relevant for you today as they did 2,000 years ago. Because God has never changed and human nature has not changed.

Boldness is necessary because we don’t want our lives to be lived in vain. We don’t want to come to the end of our lives—our jobs, our ministries, our families—and say, “It’s empty. Nothing happened. There was no effect that mattered. It was all in vain.” We don’t want to feel that or say that. And so boldness is necessary to keep that from happening—so that our lives are not in vain.
