Acts 28:31 “He proclaimed the kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ- with all boldness and without hindrance”
This last verse in Acts is truly a great representation for the entire book and really for the life of Paul. In the last year I have read through the book of acts twice and both times I got an extreme sense to be extreme. I want to be bold and on fire for the Lord! I am not even really sure I know exactly how to live this out, but I believe God wants willing hearts and He will gladly take care of the rest. He will give us the strength and courage to be bold and unafraid if we simply give Him our hearts.
I know easier said than done, but if you are having a hard time being willing right now, do not be discouraged. Any Jesus lover that you look up to doesn’t just wake up every day refreshed and ready to take on life. No, actually they probably have to pray for encouragement and strength a lot more than you think you do.
It’s okay to ask our Sweet Gracious Father for help. He doesn’t want us to do it all alone nor does He think we can do it alone. Pray to Him. He is the God of endurance and encouragement therefore only with Him can we endure all things.
I challenge you to strive for a Paul like life with our Lord and Heavenly Father right at the center of it.
