Christians: Bold for Jesus?

I became a Christian at 19. For the first 25 years, I diligently attended church services, which means that I came into regular contact with Christians comfortable in that setting, and for the last eight years, I have been transitioning into a more independent state, finding fellowship with seekers and believers in alternative formats.

One doesn’t have to be big and strong to do great things; one only has to be associated with Someone who is big and strong. Reflection, original oil painting by Steve Henderson; licensed print at Great Big Canvas, Framed Canvas Art, iCanvasART, and Vision Art Galleries.

What I’ve encountered, in those 33 years, are far too many Christians who feel insecure, ineffective, inferior, timorous, and apprehensive. If there is any possible spiritual fault they could have, they’ve got it — they don’t have enough faith (Fault Number One), they don’t read the Bible enough (actually, this one is easily solved — just read the Bible more), or this one, which sounds like a Bible verse but isn’t:

“I am not bold enough for Christ.”

If you’ve said this, and put yourself down for it, please read the rest of the story at my Commonsense Christianity article at BeliefNet, What If You’re Too Timid to Be “Bold for Christ”?
