Holy Spirit generated “boldness” (Acts 4 esp. vss. 13, 29 & 31 and 28:31) is not rude, crude, “in your face” religious demagoguery … instead it is a loving, unapologetic, honest expression of the “good news” of the gospel and the joy of serving the Lord and others in Jesus’ name. It is incredibly attractive to many who are searching for spiritual reality and an authentic lifestyle.
Lord, I want and need the “boldness” that the Holy Spirit produces! The ancient church prayed for it and you granted it (Acts 4:29-31)! Generate it again in us!
