Be as Bold as a Lion!
A common characteristic of believers in the early church was their boldness. It is mentioned again and again in Scripture to describe those who “turned the world upside down” (Acts 17:6).
Their actions were not based on arrogance or egotism, but rather it was confidence they learned from the Son of God, of whom it was said, “He speaks boldly” (John 7:26). Even if you consider yourself to be a shy individual, the Lord can make you such a forceful witness that you’ll even surprise yourself. As born again followers of Christ “...we have boldness and access with confidence through faith in Him” (Ephesians 3:11-12).
God’s Word declares, “The righteous are bold as a lion” (Proverbs 28:1). If you have given your heart to the Lord, you are declared righteous in God’s eyes and the fearless nature of the Lion of Judah is in your very being. Bravely stand and declare the Good News!
