Daily Verse: “So he went in and out among them at Jerusalem, preaching boldly in the name of the Lord.” (Acts 9:28 ESV)

PARRESIAZOMAI (3955): “To be frank in utterance or confidence in spirit and demeanor.  This word means “to speak boldly, or freely,” and primarily had reference to speech, but acquired the meaning of “being bold, or waxing bold.”[I]

Speak freely.

Saul, not yet Paul, can’t stop telling people about Jesus.  After experiencing a blinding light that caused Saul to fall to his knees, changing his entire perspective on God, he’s got a lot to tell.  When God moves in our lives, we can’t help but talk about it.

Saul’s experience on the road to Damascus doesn’t happen every day.  However, God’s constantly working; if we seek, we will find.  And when we discover God’s activity, we can’t help but talk about it, just like Saul.

Tell the love story.

When I first started WW in my thirties, I lost 60 pounds in 8 months.  Every where I went, I talked about losing weight, eating the proper foods, etc.   My love of the program changed my life drastically, just like Jesus does, and I wanted everyone to know.

Talking about my weight loss journey came easy because I loved the results.  Saul’s telling his love story with Jesus.  How they met and how it changed his life.  Sharing with others our love story with Christ helps us speak boldly about Jesus.

Every morning, when I read God’s word, I begin again.  Whatever troubles I face, I know God’s with me.  When Jesus gives me glimpses of His work, it invigorates my heart.  I love God more each day as I place more faith in Him.  Somehow, someway, God always spurs me on at the right moment, helping me keep going.

And He will do the same for you.  Life in Christ gives you a lot to talk about to others.  Go all in with Christ, and make Him a top priority in your life.  Watch as Jesus amazes you with the work He does in your life and those around you.
