Persecution and opposition is a mark of every true Christian… The Old Testament prophets found it so, men like Amos, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and Daniel. So did the New Testament apostles. And down through the centuries of the Christian church right up until today, authentic Christians who refuse to distort or dilute the gospel of grace have had to suffer for their faithfulness. The good news of Christ crucified is still a ‘scandal’ (Greek, “skandalon” = stumbling-block), grievously offensive to the pride of our generation. Preach it anyways!
IF you’re real, you won’t have to pick a fight — attack upon your life and character will be unavoidable. But as you stand up, and through, such an onslaught; Christ’s power becomes more and more evident to the cynical, sarcastic culture hidding in the shadows of a lie. Soon light will reveal all… until then, press on.
Yours in the fight and the victory, Chilly
