“And now, Lord, look upon their threats and grant to your servants to continue to speak your word with all boldness, while you stretch out your hand to heal, and signs and wonders are performed through the name of your holy servant Jesus.” And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak the word of God with boldness.”
Acts 4:29-31 ESV
In Jesus we have overcome death, so why do we fear those who can only take our life?
That should give us boldness -- and it has for those in the passage
I would not say that I "speak the word of God with boldness."
Application and Opportunity
In prayer, can you stretch and desire boldness?
Feel it rise?
Or, in faith, speak and act in boldness.
And trust that it will be in God's plan, whatever the outcome.
Which is the life well-lived?
