The Secret of Holy Boldness

The Secret of Holy Boldness (1236)
Many of us want to share our faith, but we’ve been intimidated out of doing so. Acts 4:13 says, “Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marveled; and took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.”

We need an epidemic of holy boldness, the same one that transformed Peter and John. What is the secret of their holy boldness?

If we are going to be bold witnesses for Jesus Christ, we can expect persecution. Peter and John were persecuted. The persecution was not against them, it was against Jesus. If the resurrected Christ dwells in us, the same world that hated Jesus will hate us. But we are to rejoice and be exceedingly glad. Why? Adrian Rogers says, “The church persecuted is always the church powerful.”

When you have a holy boldness, you can express persuasion. No one has ever been argued into Heaven. Witnessing is about sharing your personal encounter with the living Christ to others. Adrian Rogers says, “I can preach truth, but only He can impart truth.”

Another secret of holy boldness is the presence we will experience. The disciples were bold because they had been with Jesus. They had seen Christ alive, resurrected and now Christ lives in them. Nothing could intimidate them. The Enemy could not shut them up or hold them back. They were filled with the Spirit of God and the presence of Jesus.

The final secret to holy boldness is the person we will exalt. Again, Adrian Rogers says, “You cannot be convinced that Jesus Christ came out of that grave and that He’s the only hope of a sin-cursed world and be silent; you cannot!”

Understand that holy boldness is not human courage. It is not arrogance or presumption. Holy boldness is saying, “Lord Jesus. If You are for me, who can be against me?”

Apply it to your life
Do you wish to have more courage when you share your faith in Jesus with others? Pray for an epidemic of holy boldness. Be a good steward of the faith you have been given.
