"Boldness...Mystery of the Gospel"
“Boldness…Mystery of the Gospel”
Believers are to pray.
We are to pray without ceasing.
With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints,
and pray on my behalf, that utterance may be given to me in the opening of my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel,
for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in proclaiming it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
We are to pray at all times in the Spirit.
We are to petition at all times in the Spirit.
For all the saints.
We are to be on the alert with all perseverance for one another.
We have a role.
We have a responsibility.
Pray for one another.
Paul then requested prayer for himself.
Note his situation.
He is an ambassador in chains.
He is chained. Imprisoned.
Still, he desired boldness.
He desired that utterance be given to him in the opening of his mouth.
He desired boldness in proclaiming the mystery of the gospel.
We should ask likewise.
We must boldly proclaim the mystery of the gospel
