God has revealed His love for us by His actions. He gave us righteousness through faith, not through our own actions or our own worthiness. We look at the world around us and we often want to be seen in a certain way by them, affirmed and liked. We know that to many in the world the gospel is a radical idea, it is implausible to them that this amazing story could be true. “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing but to those who are being saved it is the power of God” (1 Corinthians 1:17-19).
If we have chosen faith in God’s promise and we have chosen to be bold how should we then work this out in our lives? We must know the word of God intimately. We mush be prepared each day to “give an answer to anyone who asks you to give a reason for the hope that you have” and we must do so “with gentleness and respect”(1 Peter 3:15).
