Be Bold for the Lord

A post I read this morning titled, “Are YOU Ashamed?!” reminded me why I do what I do–why I take the time and make the effort to share my faith. In the post, the writer shared an experience where she was bold and asked a random person if she could pray for her.

Do you do this? Do you go out there and openly ask people if you can offer them a prayer? Do you go out there and share your faith? Or do you feel ashamed about sharing Jesus? I believe we have plenty of opportunities to evangelize and bless others with our faith, but often a lot of us are unable to do so because of our little fears–fear of rejection, fear of being ridiculed, and fear of being thought of as crazy. We are not bold enough.

In Mark 8:38, Jesus said, “For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of Man also be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father with the Holy angels.” It is our Christian duty to share the gospel. And there is no need to fear, for our work is not our own but of the Lord.
