boldly in the synagogue: whom when Aquila and Priscilla had heard, they took
him unto them, and expounded unto him the way of God more perfectly (Acts

As a believer in Christ Jesus you have a right to boldly
declare your faith at every given opportunity without reservations. You must
never be shy or intimidated to publicly proclaim the Name of Jesus Christ.

On October 1st for example, the country’s
Independence Day anniversary was celebrated in various public places across the
country. At the different venues, they probably had religious men come forward
to pray for the country. But when a Christian minister is invited to pray at
such events, it’s an opportunity for him to testify of Christ to his state and
indeed the whole nation by praying in the Name of Jesus Christ. There had been
some however who had such an opportunity but wouldn’t pray in the Name of Jesus
Christ of Nazareth, so as not to offend “other” religions. How sad!

God gave you His Spirit to live in you and embolden you, so
you’ll never be timid or intimidated to proclaim Jesus Christ openly. Acts 1:8
says “But ye shall receive power, after
that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in
Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of
the earth.”
 That’s how Jesus’
disciples, who were once timid, became firebrand ministers of the Gospel; they
received the Holy Spirit.

If you’re asked to pray or speak anywhere as a Christian,
don’t be ashamed to speak in His Name. Remember the Words of Jesus: “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
(Mark 8:38).

We are blessed to be in a country where even the
constitution entitles us to the freedom of thought, conscience and faith,
including the freedom to manifest and propagate our faith or belief in worship,
teaching, practice and observance. We therefore have no excuse not to preach
the Gospel with all fervency like we should. Start exercising your God-given
freedom to preach the Gospel today!


Dear Heavenly Father,
thank You for the freedom I enjoy, not only as a citizen of your glorious
Kingdom, but also of this great nation of Yours Nigeria. I exercise my freedom
of thought, conscience, and faith today without reservations, knowing that
whosoever the Son has made free is free indeed, in Jesus Christ Name! Amen!


May Our God The Almighty prosper
Nigeria and Israel and defend them from all their enemies in Jesus Christ Name,
