5 Ways to be a Positive Influence for Jesus

5. Be bold. 

Do crazy things. The earliest Christians weren’t afraid of anything. They boldly expressed their love for Christ and they got insane results! Here’s how you can be bold:

  • Give up something so that someone else can have it (like giving someone a seat on a bus or plane).
  • Forgive when everyone expects you to hold a grudge.
  • Stay calm when the situation should anger you.
  • Talk about Jesus when everyone else is afraid to.
  • Be who God called you to be even when that person is challenging to become.

God’s word about boldness:

 The wicked flee when no one is pursuing them, but the righteous are as bold as a lion. ~Proverbs 28:1

In the past two years God has challenged me in ways I never imagined. He had me marry a Marine. Then he asked me to transfer schools. Next, he had me change degree programs. Now, he’s having me move across the ocean! My life is not what I pictured it would be! However, at every twist and turn I’ve had the opportunity to share my faith to someone I never would have met otherwise. These suggestions are not all easy. They require boldness and sacrifice. However, God is with you every step of the way. Be bold. We serve a bold God.
