“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – 2 Corinthians 4:13




Scripture says, “I spoke because I believed.”


In the same spirit of faith

we also speak because we believe.


– 2 Corinthians 4:13 (NRSV)






First of all, I must believe in Who I proclaim

but I must also believe in what I proclaim

…but really believe it,

with all my heart, with all my soul, with all my mind.


I must be able to truthfully declare,

like Saint Paul does in this verse,

that, since I have the same Spirit of faith as the Psalmist who wrote ‘I spoke because I believed’ (Ps 116:10),

I too, therefore, speak because I believe.


I am emboldened to speak out no matter what the circumstance or the consequence,

only if I have a personal relationship with Christ

and if I determinedly strive to live in communion with Him and with His teachings and commands,

and love Him above all else

because I know and I believe

that He is “the Resurrection and the Life” (Jn 11:25),

“the Christ, the Son of God, who is to come into the world.” (Jn 11:27).






Holy Spirit, help me in my responsibilities as a believer

to live my faith and to always boldly declare it.
