Day 36, Nicene Creed, 28th Line
who has spoken through the prophets.
Throughout the ages, there have been those courageous enough to listen for God’s voice, and speak His truth. And yes, it takes courage. Sure, people love to name their children after famous prophets eventually, but during their own times, most prophets are not always well-received by the masses. God’s truth is often challenging, and while it’s always something we need to hear, it’s not always something we want to hear.
As Christians, we are all called to be prophets within our own circles of influence. Do we have the courage to speak God's truth in love whether what He inspires us to say is popular or not?
