SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 09/14- “Be Bold, Be Strong—Unafraid And Unashamed!” (Romans 1:16)
Premise Question: Why would anyone, who has already experienced, and is actually in the know, ever succumb to being afraid or ashamed of sharing openly, with those who are in desperate need, the very thing—The Good News of Jesus Christ, that will truly deliver and set them completely free; giving and granting them an everlasting life, full of love, joy and peace forevermore?
“For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes—the Jew first and also the Gentile.”
(Romans 1:16 NLT)
I am more than eager and well prepared to share, with anyone and everyone, at anytime and everywhere, without any hesitation, reservation or restraint, holding nothing back in reserve, but with an openness and boldness, being ever ready to declare, for all to see, hear and know, of my undying devotion and allegiance to The Gospel of Jesus Christ, which is absolutely the most excellent and incredible Good News, (the best ever in the history of the world) given to humankind; whereby, anyone and everyone, no matter what nation or station in life one hails from, all those who will embrace The Good News, by placing their complete trust and reliance in The LORD Jesus Christ and the incomparable, unsurpassed power of Papa God, which brings freedom, deliverance and salvation to everyone, shall be set free for all eternity. First, to those He first appeared to, the Jews, and then, to every other nation and people group in the whole world. (Romans 1:16 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Perhaps, some of us are afraid and ashamed, at times, and are therefore, then prone to be subject to, and succumb to, the lies and pressures of the influences that surround us. Such as: family or peer pressure, the culture, social mores, what may be accepted as popular or unpopular, couth or uncouth, cool or uncool, or even because we may be fearful of being embarrassed, ridiculed, shamed, persecuted, or that we may in some way suffer harm, for our faith, beliefs, practices, standards and way of life. Whatever the case, we do not really have any valid reason to ever be subject to nor succumb to, being afraid or ashamed! For as Papa God’s Holy Writ clearly says, as well as, strongly encourages us to accept and believe: “If Papa God Is for us, (and He absolutely most assuredly is) then who could ever be against us!” No one and nothing!
Therefore, because we are inspired and filled with the power and personal presence of The Holy Spirit, within the within of our innermost being, we should, can and ought to become strong and bold, courageous and fearless, in sharing the Good News of The LORD Jesus Christ—who is the only One who can release, deliver and set humankind free; from the power of sin and the influence of darkness and the evil one!
And remember, Papa God has commissioned us, The Company of The Redeemed, with this great and vital divine mission, of sharing the Good News with those that are lost; whose deliverance and salvation is actually depending on us being bold and strong, unafraid and unashamed! Blessings…
