“And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believed and therefore I spoke, we also believe and therefore speak. 2 Corinthians 4:13
Can there be a silent faith? Can there be a genuine faith that does not lift up its voice to be heard? Does not our silence betray the fact that we do not truly, at the core of our being, believe those things we profess to believe? I am convinced that nothing would ever be able to silence us if we became truly convinced of the glory, power and beauty of the Lord Jesus, of God’s great desire to show mercy and grant eternal life to the repentant, of the imminent approach of the day of judgment, and of the horror of the eternal punishment that awaits those who do not believe.
May God grant to all of us, His people, a greater revelation of these things so that with all our believing there would also be speaking.
“I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kindgom: Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.” 2 Timothy 4:1-2
