As a Christian, are you waiting for God to change the shouting ways of the world? We know the morality of God is slowly being subdued: His word talked over, the definition of biblical marriage rewritten with lies, even truth defining man and woman is edited with society’s opinions.
God does not want Christians muffled by the shrieks of satan. We know God desires His word to be clearly heard in our country and all over the world. Jesus even instructed His believers to go forth and proclaim Him to “all nations”.
“Teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.”
Matthew 28:18-20 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Believers are not to stay silent. Once saved, Christians receive the Holy Spirit. He encourages our hearts to follow God and His word. We are not to stand silent when others disparage God’s character. We are not to ignore hate towards our Lord. In doing so we allow God’s word to be manipulated for evil and not for His glory.
Philippians 1:27-29 Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or only hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in the one Spirit, striving together as one for the faith of the gospel without being frightened in any way by those who oppose you. This is a sign to them that they will be destroyed, but that you will be saved—and that by God. For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe in him, but also to suffer for him,
We Christians are laying too low, afraid to offend, afraid to express what we believe if others don’t believe the same. I do it too – but I’m trying to change. Stating Christian beliefs, politely, is not directed as an insult to others. It’s what I believe.
- I believe the Bible is the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God.
- I believe there is one God, eternally existents in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
- I believe Jesus Christ is the son of God, born of a virgin, and lived a sinless life.
- I believe Jesus shed His blood on the cross for all sin, His body resurrected, then He ascended to sit at the right hand of God the Father.
- I believe that Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation.
- I believe Jesus will one day return and win the final battle over evil.
- I believe in the Holy Spirit.
If anyone chooses to not believe what I believe, I don’t hate them for it. No one can force Jesus upon anyone. Even God doesn’t force Jesus en masse, He gives everyone a choice. But America shouldn’t allow non-Christian ways to reign above Christians. America was formed on Judeo-Christian values. Look at what’s happening to Christians in Russia and China:
Moscow Theological Seminary president Peter Mitskevich is concerned about the implementation of the new amendments, which are said to be the biggest increase in government control of religion since the 2016 Yarovaya law banned evangelism in the country.https://www.christianitytoday.com/news/2016/june/no-evangelizing-outside-of-church-russia-proposes.html
In April 2021, Radio Free Asia reported that “authorities in China are detaining Christians in secretive, mobile ‘transformation’ facilities to make them renounce their faith.”https://www.forbes.com/sites/ewelinaochab/2021/05/05/are-christians-in-china-next-in-line-for-re-education/?sh=316066064fb2
In the United States Of America, Christians must continue to speak louder for our faith, never allowing our nation, built by God, to turn away from God.
Matthew 5:14-16 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
Are You A Follower Of Jesus?
If you’re uncertain you’ve ever invited Jesus into your heart – now is the perfect time. Pray this sinner’s prayer found at Gotquestions.com. Only through Jesus Christ can you receive the redemptive hope that He alone offers.
“God, I know that I am a sinner. I know that I deserve the consequences of my sin. However, I am trusting in Jesus Christ as my Savior. I believe that His death and resurrection provided for my forgiveness. I trust in Jesus and Jesus alone as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank you Lord, for saving me and forgiving me! Amen!”
