It's Time: Be Bold

Christians are called to be bold for Christ. This means trusting and responding to the Holy Spirit to live like Jesus (Nehemiah 1:11). Just like Nehemiah, our boldness and the fearlessness that goes along with that comes from trusting God (Nehemiah 1:14; 2:20). To help us, Jesus gives us the Holy Spirit to guide us through life (Acts 1:4-5Genesis 1:1-2Matthew 3:16-17). Our boldness allows us to reach others for Christ. It gives us the chance to be brave and confident in what we’re saying (Acts 1:6-8). The Holy Spirit empowers us to lay down our lives for others and encourages us to look forward to God moving in our lives and in the lives of those around us.
