Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, Ephesians 6:19
Some information that is talked about can sometimes be very dangerous information to talk about. It can create divides and anger some people, while encouraging others.
How much a person believes in something often determines how willing he is to fearlessly talk about it to someone else. The more confrontational the information is, the more fearlessness a person needs to pass it on. Many will back down when the danger rises up.
As Paul finishes his letter to the Ephesians, he asks for them to pray that he may have the words to speak, so that he will be able to fearlessly pass on the gospel message.
One of the most confrontational messages a person may ever have to talk about to others is the gospel message. This message tells another person that he messed up, is bad and needs serious help or will die for his mess ups. Very few people like to be told something like this, and some will even go on the physical defensiveness against it.
Knowing that some will take great offense to the gospel message, believers need to have great boldness and fearlessness to be willing to present it to people.
Having the Holy Spirit residing in and guiding a believer will provide the correct words to speak. This can give the believer a confidence and fearlessness to boldly tell people what they need to hear. He understands the greater danger of not telling people about Jesus, that overrides the physical danger that some may present.
The more believers that take a step of fearlessness in presenting the gospel message more and more, the more people will be given the chance to be saved from condemnation and more will be saved.
At some point in your life someone took a bold and fearless step to tell you about Jesus. It gave you the chance to have your sins forgiven and be given eternal life.
There are people that you come in contact with daily that need to hear that same message from you. As you give that message, some will accept, some will ignore, and some will be violent against it.
Be willing to speak it in boldness and fearlessness, trusting God with your life. Give others a chance to believe also.
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that God will give you the words to speak; that God will remove all fear of speaking to others; and that many will hear and be changed by the gospel message of Jesus from you.
