Why would God give you boldness if he didn’t expect you to use it?
He proclaimed the kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ—with all boldness and without hindrance!
Paul preached the gospel with boldness. He need to be bold. It’s not that people would’ve have listened to him if he wasn’t. They would have.
But maybe not a second or fifth time.
Be honest. Most of us would barely welcome one imprisonment because of sharing the good news. Seems like Paul was always in prison.
But he shared the message of Jesus in spite of his circumstances. That takes boldness. That’s why God gave it to him.
That’s why God gave it to us, too.
