Bold. The very word conjures up images of solid strength. But what is boldness? What does it mean to live boldly?
This weekend at the CYIA fall retreat we are going to look at what it means to be bold. We’ll learn that our faith is bold and that Jesus spoke bold words about the bold Truth. Sunday’s topic is bold prayer. The speaker, Joby Martin, said, “If the tomb is empty, anything is possible!” He will encourage us to live like we believe that the tomb is empty!
Please pray for us this weekend. Pray that those at the retreat would be encouraged and challenged. Pray for a bold faith as we head back into their routines on Monday morning. Pray also that this weekend would be a refreshing time of stepping back and reconnecting with the Lord and with each other. And please pray for energy and wisdom for me as I keep a teenage pace for the weekend!
But don’t stop there! Pray for your own boldness in Christ. We all need this reminder that our faith is in an almighty God, and that in Him all things are possible! We will be watching the video series “Bold” by Joby Martin from Right Now Media, and I am very excited to see what God will do through this message! Why don’t you take some time this weekend to watch it too, and pray with us for the boldness of the gospel?
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes. Romans 1:16
Keep Seeking the Kingdom!
