Humility: Prayer to be Fearless

Rod Shimabukuro


Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains.Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should. Ephesians 6:16


It is sooooo intriguing to me that after writing a profound letter, under the influence of God, Paul asks for prayer to be fearless. Not just fearless in living life - but fearless in proclaiming the Gospel! Considering the vast and deep truth Paul pens throughout this letter of the Person, Work and wonders of Jesus, he concludes recognizing what seems to be a heart to "keep on, keeping on!" To be bold in proclamation of the Person of Jesus!


Why am I so caught up with myself, this life, even "church work" that I fall short in fearlessly proclaiming the Gospel? God has sent a few brothers into my life, who's lives challenges me to be more fearless in Gospel living and proclamation! I'm so thankful for Kevin, Chris, Phil... They are men with like hearted passions, even failures... but they are men who are fearless!

I want to keep growing in knowing, understanding and living in JESUS - as Paul instructs in Ephesians! Through Jesus, I can grow to become a fearless Gospel ambassador!


Thank you Jesus! Thank you so much for sending these men and brothers into my life! I'm so thankful that You have stirred my heart with conviction to learn and continue humbling my heart and life, to grow and be discipled by Your Spirit through them! You are incredibly Good!
