Weekly Focal Point - November 3

Boldness

When we think of what it means to be a godly person, several virtues are likely to come to mind. Unfortunately, we often fail to include the key biblical ingredient the Bible calls “boldness.” In our “kinder, gentler” version of Christianity we are tempted to think “timidity” is what God esteems. Nothing could be further from the truth! In the pages of Scripture God is continually prompting his heroes to “be strong and very courageous” (Joshua 1:7). When his people are bashful they are chided (2 Timothy 1:7-8). God’s values couldn’t be clearer: “the righteous are as bold as a lion” (Proverbs 28:1). Let’s see the fear of man for what it is and be counted with those who care more about what Christ thinks (Proverbs 29:5; Galatians 1:10). May we always stand up for truth and be quick to commend those who boldly do the same.
