7 Lessons for L.I.F.E.: Living in Favor and Expectancy

Lesson 4: Be Bold in the Lord.

Luke 12: 8-9 I tell you, whoever acknowledges me before men, the Son of Man will also acknowledge him before the angels of God. But he who disowns me before men will be disowned before the angels of God.

How often have you been at work in a discussion about a particular moral topic and instead of speaking up, you sat quietly by and allowed others to speak untruths or defame the gospel and moral value systems?

We disown God when we hope no one will think we are Christians, decide not to speak up for what is right, are silent about our relationship with God, blend into society, and accept our culture’s non-Christian values. By contrast, we honor God when we become bold in His name by living moral, upright, Christ loving lives, looking for opportunities to share our faith with others, helping others in need, taking a stand for justice, loving others, acknowledging our loyalty to Christ, and using our lives and resources to carry out his desires rather than our own.
