This Christian walk requires boldness. As a believer in Jesus Christ, the world tells us that everything we believe is ridiculous and foolish. And we must turn our backs to the message of the world and submit to the message of the cross.
What a bold stance.
Boldness is a key characteristic of a follower of Jesus Christ. We must go against the grain and stand when the world tells us to bow: bow to our jobs, bow to sickness and disease, and bow to sexual immorality.
We must be bold. We must look in the face of everything that contradicts our faith and declare that we will believe God over what we see, over what they say, and over what they do.
So how do we be bold? How do we turn our backs to this world and it’s way? We visit the throne of grace:
Our boldness comes from the throne that sits our Father and His Son. The throne of grace is where the mercy and grace we so desperately need in order to be bold for Christ. The throne is where the confidence rests that is connected to our boldness. The throne is what we face we are trying to avoid the world and it’s ways.
The throne is our focal point. This is how we be bold. This is how we take our bold stance. This is how we focus on the message of the cross.
So continue to stand strong. Continue to press forward in a world that is calling you to compromise. Continue to follow the purpose Christ has placed inside of you.
Continue to be bold for Christ.
Peace and Blessings
