Courage to Follow Jesus

Philippians 1 20

 

Verse of the Day:  Philippians 1:20

I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death.

 

Because of God’s grace we do not have to be ashamed of any suffering we may encounter for Christ.  We must have the courage to follow Jesus and declare Him to be the Son of God, the Messiah and the Lord of our lives. (Romans 10:9) Having courage also means being obedient to His teachings. (John 8:31) Be courageous and determined to always do your very best to obey the call of God in all circumstances.

Keep on Speaking

Verse of the Day:  Acts 18:9

One night the Lord spoke to Paul, “Do not be afraid, keep on speaking, do not be silent.”

 

We live in a society where everyone wants to give their opinion on anything and everything. As believers in Christ we must be courageous and willing to stand up for what we believe in, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.  Don’t be afraid to share Jesus with the world, just tell them what God has done for you.

Be an Overcomer

1 romans 12 21

 

Verse of the Day:  Romans 12:21

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

 

It’s easy to see that the devil is busy stirring up evil all over the world.  That’s why we as Christians need to keep vigilant and put on the whole armor of God.  Don’t repay evil for evil, instead love your enemies and pray for them.  Keep doing good deeds and don’t let evil weaken you.  Be strong and courageous in your faith, be an overcomer.
