On this Sunday the read is from Dr. Michael Brown, a nationally syndicated radio host. Here’s an excerpt:
But what’s so special about April 14? Right now, there’s nothing of particular significance about that day in America, other than the fact that it’s one day before Tax Day. Or that it’s National Dolphin Day, National Ex-Spouse Day, National Gardening Day, and National Pecan Day. Who knew?
From here on, though, we are proclaiming April 14 to be National Not Ashamed of Jesus Day. On that day, we’re encouraging every one of us to make a public statement of our faith in whatever way we can.
You might say, “But shouldn’t we do that every day? Shouldn’t we look for opportunities to lift up the Lord every day of the week? Shouldn’t we always be known as believers?”
