He served the Lord Jesus Christ and shared his faith with Love and Boldness, not ever ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Rom 1:16-17 “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For it in the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, ‘The righteous shall live by faith.'”
John 14:6 “Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.'”
Heb 9:27-28 “And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment, so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.”
