With boldness

"For I know that this will turn out for my deliverance through your prayer and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, according to my earnest expectation and hope that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain." Philippians 1:19-21

The apostle Paul lived such an impactful life for Christ. These verses in his epistle to the church at Philippi really stand out to me as an explanation for the magnitude of his life. Paul's hope and expectation was such that Christ would be magnified BOLDLY in his life. Honestly, Paul didn't care what that meant either, be it death or continuing to live his life day in and day out for Jesus. He just wanted to bring glory to God and grow His kingdom. 

Imagine what this world might look like if believers lived for Christ like Paul did. I'm working to see this changed in my life. I'm studying His Word, spending time in prayer and desiring to be bold like Paul, to proclaim Jesus in all that I do-not just at church or with my family, but in every encounter and every moment. I want every breath to bring glory to God. 

Let's be bold for Jesus and see His Kingdom grow and His name be magnified!
