Boldness

When I think of Paul or Peter and the other Apostles, I think of their boldness and how I fail many times when the chance comes to speak the word of God to others. But when I think of them it encouages me to keep on going. Like when Paul in Acts: Acts 13:9-11 Then Saul, (who is also called Paul) filled with the Holy Ghost, set his eyes on him and said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord. And now, behold, the hand of the Lord is upon thee, and thou shalt be blind, not seeing the sun for a season. And immediately there fell on him a mist and a darkness; and he went about seeking some to lead him by the hand.


Look how Paul goes right to the heart of the problem of his sin. And God used that, to save the deputy and it says. "being astonished at the doctrine of the Lord" If christians (that includes me) would just have boldness to speak to people about the sin in the world and in everone, God will use it in a good way. The bible says all things come together for good to them that love him to them that are call for his propuse. If you go out in Faith believing the word God will use it. What ever the out come it will be for good. Have faith in God and he will do the impossable.


Please send this to anyone you know and have them send it to anyone they know.

Thats good, I kinda needed that. I tend to be bold only when I am at church; making sure my friends keep in line and everything. But at home, I have started to let things slide. For some reason (well actually I'm pretty sure I know the reason) it doesn't bother me any more and I have even laughed along, instead of reproving, like Ephesians 5:11. By God's grace I am determined to do better.

The one thing you still will have to remember is "for that wait on the Lord" prayer is needful, and all things are on Gods time table. so if we or anyone can not see change yet in your friends, we know that Gods word will not return void. just keep praying and witnessing.
