1 Corinthians 16:13 Be on alert, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong
Mature Christians don't fold up they stand firm, be about their father's business, and aren't dismayed when things "look" like the world is winning. They act like men and hold the line. They don't quit when the life gets hard. They don't throw in the towel at the 4th quarter. The 1st century Christians had true grit. They knew whom they were following and they believed Him. The book of Acts tells the stories of these faithful followers. They endured terrible persecution and many lost their lives for Jesus, yet Christianity spread like wildfire. The voice of the martyrs is over flowing with stories of the persecuted church and those who gave their lives for Christ. America are we ready to stand in the face of oppression and opposition? We have seen the censorship and heard the rumbles of hardship coming to our Churches. Will we stand up when the world says sit down? Will we shout out when they say shut up? I for one want no regret. I want to be counted as one who stood the line in faith and deeds for the ONE who gave it ALL for me, Jesus Christ. For HIM alone I will stand firm, not fold, walk away or cower. I will leave it all on God's eternal field.
