The Gospel Without Fear

A Poem in Philippians

And because of my chains, most of the brothers and sisters have become confident in the Lord and dare all the more to proclaim the gospel without fear. Philippians 1:14

Why this grip of fear

It stops me in my track

Can’t seem to get in gear

Action, my faith does lack

Knowing what I should do

It’s simple as you can see

I only need to talk to you

Explaining how to be free

Others have gone before me

They chose not to run and hide

Mockery and ridicule they see

When known to be on God’s side

Bless those in chains for your sake

Their faith is their only crime

Resolve and strength will it make

Peace will come in its time

When does one become so bold

To obey at an cost

As if there life was already sold

To focus on the lost

When I feel so very weak

Your Spirit makes me strong

Courage now, I have to speak

My heart filled with a new song

If I must, I will take the dare

To open my mouth to talk

It’s Jesus, my joy to share

His path, I’m free to walk


Blessings Love y’all
