Key Bible Verse: For you have been given not only the privilege of trusting in Christ but also the privilege of suffering for him. (Philippians 1:29)

Some of the common misconceptions about Christian life that keep believers from being bold are: 1) that accepting Christ as Savior is the final action in our life to accomplish; 2) that i can't ruffle another's beliefs because they differ from my own; and, 3) that my purpose after conversion is to steer clear of argumentative discussion in conversation with others because it might scare them away. These principles of life after conversion are hogwash. First of all, my acceptance of Christ as Savior is the beginning of my life. Second, i was called to discuss my beliefs with others daily. Finally, friendly arguments with others is an acceptable way to start a 'Christ-centered' conversation. Lord, assist me in taking these bold steps everyday as i interact with people in my walk.
