Be Bold – Pastor Blare Wood
Being bold is not the goal, knowing Jesus is the goal. Being bold will always be a byproduct of knowing Jesus.
Listen to the audio version of the message.
Acts 4:8-10 (The Message)
“Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, “Rulers and leaders of the people, if we have been brought to trial today for helping a sick man, put under investigation regarding this healing, I’ll be completely honest with you, we have nothing to hide. By the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the One you killed on a cross, the One God raised from the dead, by means of his name this man stands before you healthy and whole.”
Acts 4:13 (NIV)
“When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.”
1. God gives ordinary people extraordinary boldness
2. Your boldness will amaze the people around you.
3. Spiritual boldness comes from knowing Jesus.
