Today in Bible class, my teacher asked who would stand up and proclaim that they weren’t ashamed of God. None of us were expecting this and were feeling: shocked, scared, and nervous. While our minds were racing, the topic changed before anyone had time to stand up.
There I was: handing out cookies and Bible verses hours before, leading a Bible study, and trying to come up with something to write to you about.
I didn’t want to share how I failed God by not standing up today, and it was actually something I was avoiding.
When we hear about situations like what happened in Oregon just this past week, we want to believe that we would also make the right decision, but we don’t really know how we would react.
Thankfully, what happened in my Bible class was far from a life or death situation, but it has given me a new kind of perspective.
What kind of boldness do we have when it comes to taking a big stand for Christ?
What are we willing to give up for Him?
