Be BOLD in Christ!

Our Lord wants us to come "boldly" before His throne and to be "bold" in our lives as His servants!

Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

We must be bold in our ministries so we may obtain God's mercy and find the grace that is necessary to get us through our difficult times of need.

We need to understand something as believers. We can do "just enough" to get to heaven but that will not get us God's grace. Scimming to just-get-by is not appreciated or rewarded by God.

Revelation 20:6 states, Blessed and HOLY is he that hath part in the first esurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.

1 Corinthians 6:2-3 Do ye not know that the Saints shall judge the world!
Know ye not that we shall judge angels!

God makes it very clear that those of us who are bold in Him in our lives will reap a special reward, one reserved for the bold alone.

However, to avoid turning others off to the Good News, we must base all of our words off of the Scriptures. This will ensure that our correctness and integrity is maintained. But, more importantly, we must live by example, showing Christ through our own lives!

Philippians 1:20 According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or death!

Let us ourselves not be ashamed of Christ, rather, let us be bold about the wonderul Good News and our Almighty Lord and Savior!
