Standing for truth.
Church leaders, consider a couple passages of Scripture and ask yourself, “Am I standing for God’s truth with boldness, or am I cowering because I fear opposition?”
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you” (Deuteronomy 31:6).
“We gave you strict orders not to teach in this name,” he said. “Yet you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and are determined to make us guilty of this man’s blood.” Peter and the other apostles replied: “We must obey God rather than men!” (Acts 5:28-29).
Admittedly, it appears the culture war is all but lost. Unless the Lord intervenes through His return or the outpouring of His Holy Spirit in a dramatic revival, our civilization is heading for moral collapse.
However, our calling is not to surrender to the forces of darkness but to stand firm in the faith.
The rest is up to God.
Matthew 19:26 says with Him all things are possible. Besides, I would like for my grandchildren to know that I had enough perception to see what was coming—and had enough love for them to courageously fight the good fight of faith.
