Acts 20: 27
For I did not shrink from declaring to you the whole counsel of God.
(NET): For I did not hold back from announcing to you the whole purpose of God.
-Shrinking is deciding to turn away from determination, requirement or necessity.
-It is holding back due to fear of failure, fear of being laughed at , fear of being rejected,being marginalised and judged, etc.
-It amounts to cowering due to self doubt, inferiority complex, inexperienced, “Not my strong point “, “Not my calling “ etc.
-It goes against the great commission (Matthew 28:18 -20) and the principle of “freely you’ve received and freely you must give” (Matthew 10:7-8)
-May you find courage to declare “The good news “ of God’s grace and mercy, His goodness and faithfulness and that “Hope of the Cross” to our perishing and lost families, friends and colleagues; even the society and the nation at large.
-Grab that OPPORTUNITY!
PRAYER : LORD grant me the boldness to declare and announce the GOSPEL of the LORD Jesus, for it is Your command and the very purpose of our existence in you: “THE SALVATION OF MANKIND! “ Amen.
Have a beautiful Tuesday!
