The Bold

Be bold! We weren’t made to be boring. We weren’t made to just sit on the couch and watch TV, have mundane jobs, or be content with mediocrity (think about your grades). We were made for more. We were created from love with a purpose: to be extraordinary.

In our Gospel on Sunday, Peter and a few other disciples were fishing. When he recognized Jesus was on the shore, he jumped in and swam to Him. We’re going to miss some amazing God moments if we don’t get out of the boat, if we play it safe, if we choose comfort over boldness.

Being a Christian isn’t easy. Living for God can be difficult in a society where He is often an afterthought. Yet, we’re called to jump out of the boat—out of our comfort zone—and live extraordinarily Christian lives by following and defending His teachings and spreading His Word. Be bold, my friends.
