Verse to Remember

When I am away at these conferences with colleagues, I often find myself wondering whether they know I am a Christian.  And if not, should I make more of an effort to let them know?  Am I not being a good witness in my actions and my words?  Shouldn’t other people recognize a Christian by their love, as it says in the Bible, and do others see that love in me?  And if it came down to it, would I be bold enough to stand up for what I believe, even if other people find it foolish (or worse yet in this day and age, intolerant)?

So tonight, in the Bible place by the Gideons, I looked for verses about being bold.  Here is the verse that I have now decided will be the one I will try to remember when I travel for work:

Be strong. Take courage. Don’t be intimidated. Don’t give them a second thought because God, your God, is striding ahead of you. He’s right there with you. He won’t let you down; he won’t leave you.

-Hebrews 13: 5-6 (The Message)

  1. Love this….it’s hard to be balanced in your witnessing efforts. I pray that the Lord would give you boldness as you travel with your coworkers and at work, too. Love you!!!

  2. That is a good one Amy! I’m going to write that down. The one that I have memorized is 2 Timothy 1:7. “For the Lord did not give us a spirit of fear but of power, loves and self-discipline.”

  3. Any idea why God is printed differently in this verse?
