Boldly Proclaiming Jesus

Boldly Proclaiming Jesus by Keith Cook

"Boldly and without hindrance he preached the kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ." Acts 28:31

What makes a person bold? Does Christ want only Superman and Wonder Woman type Christians to follow Him into battle against Satan?

True boldness is "Holy Boldness". Holy Boldness comes when one is trusting in Christ for strength.

When I stand up in the streets to preach, I must admit, each time I am just a little bit afraid. I wonder if I will preach the right thing. I fear that someone might try to stop me from preaching, and the list can go on and on. I have a choice to make at that moment. Do I let my fear and natural inferiority complex take over, or do I rely on God's call on my life and His promise to be with me as I serve Him?

Boldness is not automatic or continual. As I face a new situation I must call on Christ for guidance. He always gives me the right words to say, He shows me what to do and He blesses as I step out in faith and trust in Him.

He will do the same thing for you. It may take "baby steps" or you may go out with "fear and trembling," but you will be riding the waves of God's perfect will for your life out in the deep water.

It sure is fun to be out there with God. Few people are willing to go.

The Bible says not to worry, just be ready. "Having done all you can do to Stand, Stand!"

1. What are some areas that often cause you to be afraid when you think about serving God?

2. What do you plan to do the next time fear tries to rob you of your power and opportunity to serve God?

3. If you had all the power you needed to do anything for God what would you do or attempt? Why? Why NOT?

Personal Prayer Focus: Pray for Holy Boldness. Pray that you will be all that you can be for Jesus Christ.

On The Go Prayer Focus:  Pray for On The Go Staff, Shad and Sheila Williams, and many other evangelists and pastors as they attend the Kenya Evangelism Conference. Pray for Sheila, Joan, and Mary as they shares from their heart in plenary session with each of the evangelists. Pray for guidance, leadership, and sensitivity as they minister to other evangelists and pastors this week, as well as minister in Evening Crusades.
