Paul acted with great boldness in proclaiming the gospel because he had been “approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel.” He knew his new identity and his new mission, and he refused to back down despite persecution and suffering. He has no desire to please man, flatter his hearers, or gain monetarily from his preaching. We believe our call is the same as Paul’s. With confidence we are to clearly proclaim the gospel and willingly share our very own lives. We are to be gentle “like a nursing mother taking care of her own children” and courageous like a good father “exhorting, encouraging, and challenging”, calling people into the kingdom and glory.
