Having Unbounded Confidence

I recently posted some thoughts about communicating in the public square as devoted followers of Jesus. I mentioned that so many unbelievers seem very unsure of themselves and maybe even lack a Scripture-soaked worldview that boosts our confidence in Jesus and His Way. Yale professor, Lamin Sanneh, reminds of the "unbounded confidence" of the earliest Jesus-followers:

“Once their resolve was galvanized by the resurrection experience, the apostles and the sympathizers of Jesus went about their business of testifying to the Messiah in his glorified power, and they did this with unbounded confidence.” (Lamin Sanneh, Translating the Message, 10)
