For the letter B, I think this one everyone knows and thinks is important.
The first one is Boldness
As a Christian, we are expected to be witnesses for Jesus. But Satan tries to stop us by placing questions of doubt in your mind, popping up situations in school or with your friends and tries to make you think that you are left out because you are a Christian. But God doesn’t say that.
Here is what the bible says:
For God wanted them to know that the riches and glory of Christ are for you Gentiles, too. And this is the secret: Christ lives in you. This gives you assurance of sharing his glory.
Proverbs 8: 35
For whoever finds me finds life and receives favor from the lord
1 Samuel 17: 45
You come to me with sword, spear, and javelin, but I come to you in the name of the lord of Heaven’s Armies—the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.
Daniel 3: 16-18
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego replied, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you.If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God whom we serve is able to save us. He will rescue us from your power, Your Majesty. But even if he doesn’t, we want to make it clear to you, Your Majesty, that we will never serve your gods or worship the gold statue you have set up.”
Luke 22: 39-43
Then, accompanied by the disciples, Jesus left the upstairs room and went as usual to the Mount of Olives. 40There he told them, “Pray that you will not give in to temptation.”
He walked away, about a stone’s throw, and knelt down and prayed, “Father, if you are willing, please take this cup of suffering away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.” Then an angel from heaven appeared and strengthened him. .
Daniel 6: 10
But when Daniel learned that the law had been signed, he went home and knelt down as usual in his upstairs room, with its windows open toward Jerusalem. He prayed three times a day, just as he had always done, giving thanks to his God.
These four stories of Jesus, found in Mark 14-16, David and Goliath, found in 1 Samuel 17, Daniel and the lion’s den, found in Daniel 6, and Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, Daniel 3, all show that when we trust in God, we become bold.
In Ephesians 6: 10-19, it talks about the armour of God which makes us bold and strong not only in Christ, but as a witness of Christ.
BTW, I found a clip on some year 6 boys in the USA being bold by standing up bullying.
Also, I’m starting to work on creating an anti-bullying page where you can find out how to deal with bullying. I mean, that’s a way of being bold right?
OK, so we’ve got boldness, but is the second word for the letter b?
Stay tuned you bold people 🙂
