Don't Hold Back I Daily Walk Devotion

Everyone lives with regrets. Those regrets can come from bad decisions or awkward situations, but the worse regrets are the opportunities we didn’t take. One of those regrets can be not sharing the Gospel with a friend or family member, and then they are no longer in our lives. Take a cue from Peter, and don’t hold back. Give them Jesus.

‭‭ACTS‬ ‭4:12

“And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.”

Peter’s Best Work

Acts 4 is one of Peter’s best sermons. He is standing in front of the Sanhedrin, giving a reason why the lame man was healed at the temple gate. He doesn’t hold back accusing the m of crucifying the Messiah. Then he boldly tells them that Jesus is the only way to salvation. Preaching the Gospel to the most educated people in Israel with Spirit-filled boldness was a daring move, but he didn’t hold anything back.

What’s Preventing You?

What is keeping you from boldly sharing the Gospel? Is it a lack of training? If so, I suggest you search Youtube for hundreds of videos showing you how to share the good news. I suspect the real reason is fear. I get it. We are afraid of getting rejected or offending the person. Don’t hold back. Ask for boldness from the Holy Spirit and give it a shot.

Don’t Hold Back

Nothing is more exciting than seeing someone you love come to know Jesus. As a pastor, I get to be part of that decision when someone responds to an altar call. The joy on both people’s faces is priceless. Don’t focus on the obstacles and objections. Look at the possibilities. Pray for those you want to witness; don’t hold back when given the opportunity. You won’t regret it.
