Boldly Proclaiming the Good News
Why do we hesitate to witness for our Lord? A frequent answer to that question is that we fear being rejected. Of course, we’ll be rejected! Christ Himself was “despised and rejected by men” (Isaiah 53:3), and Jesus said, “A servant is not greater than his master. If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you.” But He added, “If they kept My word, they will also keep yours” (John 15:20). Not all will reject us or the words we speak in Christ’s name. Surely, for Christ’s sake and by His grace, we can endure whatever mistreatment we receive in His name for the fruit that will result.
Prayer: O Lord, You are from everlasting to everlasting. Thank You for my Savior Who has lived the perfect life on earth in my place and Who will turn the dust of my body into a glorified body which will live eternally with You in Heaven. Help me boldly tell others of Your wonderful love, grace, and mercy. Through Christ, Son of God and Son of Man, I pray. Amen.
Blessings on your stewardship journey!
