AN UNCHAINED VOICE

05222014-Thursday

“And pray on my behalf, that utterance may be given to me in the opening of my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in proclaiming it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak (Ephesians 6:19-20).

While maybe not literal chains, as was the case for Paul, believers can find themselves shackled by competing voices within the culture. Bold and unbridled is a prayerful pursuit that must not be neglected. Paul’s three-time admonition to “stand firm” (vs.11,13,14) is a stern reminder that some things are worth standing up for.
