Today I will confess my cowardice in standing up for Christ, for the many times I have abandoned Him when I could have proclaimed Him in word or deed, for being a paper disciple. Yet, I am powerless to be stronger. So I pray the Holy Spirit to strengthen me in love and commitment.
And at that, all the disciples ran away and abandoned Him.
Today I will lay on God’s altar my cowardice. And I take some comfort that though all fled, some followed in the shadows.
