“Sin makes man a coward; but a life in the Truth of Christ makes Him bold.”
– Saint John Chrysostom
You know how you feel when you’ve done something wrong and then you’re afraid of getting caught? That fear of getting caught can make people do more and more bad things, until they find they’ve done far worse than the original bad thing, and now they’re really afraid and trapped.
Living a life in Christ, following Him and doing what’s right removes us from those fears and gives us courage.
Lord, help me to be brave by following Your will. Protect me from the snares of sin.
