How To Be Bold

I Thess. 2:1-7

Reason a lot of peole don’t go Soul Winning and don’t stand for right

Fear. Afraid. Why?

How can I Be a Christian be bold with faith others not to be

Paul was bold. Wasn’t scared. Why?

Was he special? Have something. No

The Reason Paul was bold is the same way we can be bold

I. His Message was Backed by Faith

Vs. 3 Not of Deceit- misleading, leading to believe a lie

Paul was bold because he believed in what he was saying and doing

We shouldn’t be scared to give the Gospel

Do you believe the Gospel?

Can God really save? Does the Bible say that?

If you don’t believe 100% then you will be nervous. You will be shy, scared. If you believe be bold

II. A Man Beating the Flesh

Vs.3 Not of Uncleanness – moral impurity, fleshly, worldly

Paul’s life was consistent with his lips

Does your life match your lips?

Lost, Backslid, sin flirter- you will have a hard time being bold

But…If you’re living for God, be bold

 

III. A Method Based on Father’s Word

Vs. 3 Nor in guile- to trick, craft

Soul Winnng is not being a con artist

Having standards isn’t being a good actor

What is your stand/service based on? Hearsay, craft , attention, popularity?

If your Soul Winning and lifestyle is Bible Based you can be bold.

 

 IV. A Mouth Besought By the Father
