Philippians 1:14 And many of the brethren in the Lord, waxing confident by my bonds, are much more bold to speak the word without fear.
Paul was in jail because of his preaching. He had preached the gospel without fear. Now as he is in chains, he is glad that others are getting bolder to preach the gospel. His suffering helped them not to be afraid.
We should not be afraid of the world when it comes to sharing the gospel. There is little that they can do to us. What they do should cause us to speak out more boldly than ever.
Your example will challenge others. You facing your fears helps others overcome their own.
