Battling unbelief and hardness of heart
Mark 16:9-15. Go and proclaim the gospel
If we do not pay attention to the way we think, we cannot take charge of our beliefs. If we do not pay attention to the way we feel, we cannot take charge of our hearts.
To proclaim is to proactively claim something, as in manifest the thing through a synthesis of thoughts, emotions, and actions. Both the beauty and challenge of our world is that we’re always in a state of being better. Not reflecting on our beliefs disables us from growing and flourishing.
How can we proclaim the gospel or even be the gospel that others could witness if we do not strengthen our thoughts and emotions towards a reasoned and faithful belief? This is a challenge of being virtuous.
