Hugh Hewitt in his book “The Embarrassed Believer” contends that most Christians are embarrassed believers.  They do not talk about their faith or church.  And it is to this that we are called.

Paul writes, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” – Romans 1:16
And Jesus said, “Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.” – Mark 8:38

Too many of us are embarrassed, silent, secret agents for God.  Yet we are called to be bold witnesses of Jesus Christ.  Hewitt closes with these words, “Christians in America trying to save the lost, comfort the suffering, cure the ill, clothe the naked and bring joy to the despairing will not make a significant and lasting impact unless they do so openly and without apology as Christians.  The witness must accompany the work or the work will not endure and the world is hungry for our witness”.

Be a Bold Witness!
