My boldness in the Lord is an encouragement to many people so WHO CARES about the ones who don’t like it?
In the Word of God, 1 John 4:17 says –
Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
Definition of BOLDNESS from Wikipedia –
Boldness is an opposite of being shy. A bold person may be willing to risk shame or rejection in social situations, and willing to bend rules of etiquette or politeness. An excessively bold person could aggressively ask for money, or persistently push a person to fulfill some request, and so on. Boldness does not necessarily mean obnoxious; it is possible for one to be bold, while staying silent. Excessive boldness may thus be regarded as impertinence or arrogance. Outside a social context, “boldness” can also refer to a willingness to get things done, even despite risks, and is therefore broadly synonymous with bravery.
Boldness is not always in a rash context, but can have a great positive connotation to the word. Being bold can be a huge step in social development.
Synonyms – adventuresome, adventurous, audacious, daring, dashing, emboldened, enterprising, gutsy, hardy, nerved, nervy, venturesome, venturous
To finish this up, I would just like to call your attention to the end of this Scripture verse…..
because as he is, so are we in this world.
As Jesus is NOW, seated at the right hand of the Father, complete in his Power, complete in the Finished Work, Whole and not Sick, so ARE WE IN THIS WORLD!
God Bless YOU,
