Be strong, be courageous., preach the Gospel with boldness.
LET NOTHING STOP YOU.
And now, behold, I go bound in the spirit unto Jerusalem, not knowing the things that shall befall me there: Save that the Holy Ghost witnesseth in every city, saying that bonds and afflictions abide me. But none of these things move me…. (Acts 20:22-24).
When it comes to preaching the Gospel, we must do it unafraid. Paul was aware, through the Spirit’s witness, that he’d be put in jail, and be in trouble in Jerusalem, yet he was undeterred. He said, “None of these things move me.” He was bold and courageous for the Gospel. Refuse to fear. Never get to the point where you’re intimidated or overwhelmed by the pressures and adversities of life, to affect your commitment to the Gospel. Never faint or give up in the face of adversity.
Be strong, be courageous., preach the Gospel with boldness. If you’re a church leader, for example, and for some reason you’re told your church meetings can’t hold, or you can’t use a certain venue, it’s a fight of faith. Don’t chicken out and pack up the church, because of human threats! Don’t act as though you’re helpless. We’re not hamstrung. Pray, and let God’s wisdom guide you.
When unreasonable laws are passed to stifle the propagation of the Gospel in your city, get on your knees and pray fervently in tongues, declaring that the city is dominated by the light of the Gospel, and impacted by the force of righteousness. As you pray, proclaim words of faith until you’re stirred to prophesy to, and over, the city. Remember, we’re unstoppable. So, let nothing deter you.
