Pastor Chris Says: How to Develop the Courage to Minister the Gospel

Pastor Chris Answers: How does one develop the courage to minister the Gospel?

Through the Pastor Chris Live question and answer program broadcast LIVE all over the world on the first Sunday of every month, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome PhD has provided Bible-based answers to the questions of viewers across the world. One of such people was Bornbyx from Ghana who asked the man of God, Pastor Chris, how he can develop the courage to minister the Gospel; Bornbyx had feared that people would not listen to him, but Pastor Chris says:

Your answer is in Ephesians 5:18, “And be not be drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit.” Be filled with the Spirit! If you’re filled with the spirit, you’ll always be bold. If you study the book of Acts, you’ll find out that the Apostles were made bold by the Spirit. They were emboldened by the Spirit. The Bible says [in] 1 Corinthians 14:4, “He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church.” Now, the word ‘edifieth’ also means ‘emboldens.’ It means the one who speaks in tongues emboldens himself; the more you speak in tongues, the more your spirit is stirred, stirred in the Holy Ghost and you are emboldened.

You remember that Simon Peter was timid before he received the Holy Spirit. At the crucifixion of Jesus, he denied Jesus, when Jesus was arrested; he denied knowing Jesus. He was so timid he was called Simon – a reed, shaken by the wind. But, when he received the Holy Spirit, he became bold; in spite of the large crowd present on the day of Pentecost, Peter was filled and he addressed the crowd boldly, because he had received the Holy Spirit.

Now, I believe you have the Holy Spirit already, and that’s why I’m reading to you from Ephesians 5:18 where it says “…be not be drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;” it says be filled with the spirit, be drunk with the spirit, and when you’re filled with the spirit, something you do it says here: “Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.” [Ephesians 5:18-21] These are the things you practice in being filled with the Spirit, and I tell you, you will be bold to share the Word of God. It will happen through the Holy Ghost.
