Being Bold for Christ

I was involved in a job interview today that really got my attention. The woman interviewing was in her 40's and was relocating to our area. She was clearly nervous and indicated she hadn't had to interview for a job in over ten years. She dressed simply and her hair was neatly done. There was nothing extraordinary about the lady sitting before me. Nothing about her made her stand out from the crowd. Until she spoke of her faith...

Wow! To be in a job interview - which is an already fear inducing situation - and tell how God is working in your life and how you want to make a difference in the world. To share the message of Christ with three strangers. She was not ordinary. She was bold. She was daring. She got my attention.

God is challenging YOU today to be bold. After all, Satan is bold in sharing his message of sin. Why shouldn't we be bold with the greatest news that has ever been told? Christ's message of hope & love & forgiveness & sacrifice for us needs to be told. I pray we will quit doing what is comfortable and live boldly for Christ.

To quote a great bumper sticker I saw:
Try Jesus. If you don't like Him, the devil will always take you back!
