Bold as a Lion

Righteousness, being aligned with God and His ways, produces boldness. (Pr 28:1) It’s not reckless arrogance or disregard for others — but holy, loving fearlessness.

We don’t fear what others might do to us (He 13:6) because we’re armed with a willingness to suffer (1Pe 4:1), knowing the enemy can only move with God’s permission and that whatever He allows is for His glory and our good. (Ro 8:28)

Saints shamelessly pursue godliness regardless of the world’s disdain, testifying by word and deed that its works and ways are evil. (Jn 7:7) Wisdom dictates when and how we live this out, but one thing we’ll have in common … holy boldness.
