We can no longer be passive, that time is over.
Christianity is mocked in all forms of media, the only time Christians are portrayed in a positive light is when they have been conformed to the new worldly standards.
For years we have been told not to “Bible Thump” or force our beliefs on others but now the world’s fleeting views are being forced on us.
The answer to this is not worldly aggression but a sound Biblical approach.
I brought this topic up in Bible Study last week and my Pastors response was the closer he is with Jesus the better he can respond and handle situations like that.
He has found out that people are generally more curious about his beliefs, what he does and what the church does. It’s a good opening to talk about Jesus.
So in order to be ready to talk about our beliefs we have to stay close to Jesus and honor His word not just in the moral standards but in our own behavior.
Be gentle but firm, be loving but don’t condone, all and all show mercy with grace in love.
The answer to everything is Jesus many don’t want Him but His sheep will hear His voice. Listen to Him, obey His Word and stand firm in these times.
Show the world the Way to the narrow path.
Have a Blessed Week,
