verses 32 and 39: “Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven......Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.”
These verses, words spoken by Jesus to his disciples, should give me all the courage I need to step out in faith. If anyone asks me about my faith, I tend to give a truthful but bland response. This is because those who usually ask me this question are asking during a medical appointment. We are not meeting to talk about me. But when I think about it, if a person in that setting asks me about my faith, they are ready to hear the answer. My honest and open response may be just what ends up helping. I serve one master, and that is our God. I would not think of denying my faith because of some worldly organization. I will be more courageous and more forthcoming in the future. I do not want to miss a single chance!
Father God, please give me opportunities to share my faith. You have given me so much, and blessed me beyond words. Help me to tell others about you in a way that will be helpful to them. Amen
