Pirates are bold and fearless.
The image we have of pirates is of daring fighters, forcing their way onto ships heedless of the danger. They sail shark-infested waters, raid fortresses, and swing on ropes from one ship to another. Pirates risk life and limb sailing the oceans and plying their trade. Weak and cowardly people are never successful pirates.
We should be equally as bold in the profession of our faith. Many Christians face persecution if they read their Bible, attend church, or tell people about Jesus. The really do risk their lives, and many people would understand if they were quieter about it. But when someone asks us about God we shouldn't be shy. We shouldn't have any fear about sharing our faith and testimony. Ridicule, embarrassment, ostracization, or even physical danger shouldn't deter us. When being proud of our relationship with Jesus, be as bold as a pirate!
Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness. (Acts 4:29)
