If there ever was a time in the history of our country where it’s become apparent that our civil rights are being horrendously attacked, it’s now! As Americans we’ve fought long and hard to make gains in personal protection and civil rights. But, as you know, much of what we’ve stood for in the past is being viciously attacked be those who want to destroy our constitution as well as Christianity. This cannot be allowed to happen. And here is where the plot thickens.
As Christians, we have to know what we believe and firmly commit to those principles and standards. We can’t be like the wind, tossed to and fro by all that’s going on in the world today. We must stand on God’s Word not matter what we see happening.
And here is where the problem lies: many, if not most, Christians don’t really know God’s Word enough to stand on it. Nor do they treat it as the “benchmark” for all that they do. Too many are inundated with the ways of the world and in times of crisis, that’s where they turn.
Our beliefs are under attack and we can’t just lay down and die – giving in to the devil’s influences that so readily try to permeate every area of our lives.
My question to you, my dear brothers and sisters, is: what do you truly believe and why do you believe it? When you answer those questions, you’ll know where your heart is and be willing to stand up and fight for what you believe. There’s a reason it’s called “the good fight of faith”!
We are the people of God and He has so equipped us to be victorious in the last days. Let’s be the glorious Church of the Lord Jesus Christ so that the world will see that Jesus is Lord!
