What would happen if we were bold for Jesus Christ?

Like Luke, the only one to write about what happened in the lives of the Apostles after the gospels.

Or

Paul who dared to write letters to the gentiles (people like me and maybe you), and declare that living in the Spirit and following Jesus greater than the “law” he grew up under as a Jew.

Or

The 12 apostles who faced death or worse, and most of them lost their lives so that we may call ourselves Christians, two thousands years later. 

One night when I couldn’t sleep God lead me to this verse.  I finished reading Roman earlier that day. When I couldn’t sleep I kept hearing a soft voice says “what’s the verse you read about slumber?”

“And do this understanding the present time. The hour has come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now then when we first believed.” Romans 13:11

I think Paul is telling the Romans and us that we need to be bold for Jesus Christ, to wake up from our busy lives and act on our passion for Christ. He dares us to tell others what Christ has done for us. 

Jesus said “The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand”

Now I say I dare you and me to reach out and declare it.
