Morning Devotion: Be bold

Be bold today.

Intercede today for that discouraged co-worker by praising him or her for something, even when other workers spout criticism.

Forgive that friend’s random, calloused words, even when Satan is whispering that you should get even.

Reclaim that moral high ground within your personal life even when loneliness or insults of others push you toward the poisonous placebo of porn or unsanctified flirting.

Tell others that you’re not going to join their gossip or their pilfering from work or their lewdness or their whatever. You’re a believer trying to imitate Christ and He would never do such things.

Perhaps most difficult for you, invite your unsaved friends to church or to a home Bible study group or to a lunch where the two of you talk about faith and life.

Be bold today.

“And we are God’s house, if we keep our courage and remain confident in our hope in Christ.” (Hebrews 3:6)

As you and I live with boldness, we’ll be reminded of the blessing that awaits. And perhaps one more soul will step off of the broad, conformist path that leads to destruction and onto the narrow, bold path that leads to eternal life.

As always, I love you
