Because of my chains…people dare all the more to proclaim the gospel without fear.
Christians who live by the Spirit and display courage, despite fear, set the example for all. Paul is saying his courage is giving others courage to be more courageous. If you lack courage from the Holy Spirit, you converse too much with Satan. All your circumstances are ordained by God and we must proclaim Jesus despite the difficulty. A single act of courage can create a multitude of bravery. “When the Philistines saw that their champion was dead, they fled, And the men of Israel rose with a shout and pursued” (1 Sam. 17:51-52).
Pray for courage to proclaim Christ despite difficulties.
