The one thing that will cripple our nation & the church beyond the hope of recovery is the failure of Christians to stand up for their Savior.
How many times have I asked God to put a Christian in the path of someone I was praying for… and how often have I been that Christian that God put in someone’s path & I didn’t stand up for Him.
The devil’s biggest victory today is that Christians do not stand out from this godless world. We try to fit in… afraid of losing prestige, popularity or promotions.
Jesus Christ didn’t suffer the cross so we could fill our churches with half-hearted, lukewarm Christians. Can we let another year pass with the Lord patiently waiting for our full surrender?
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. Rom 1:16
“Satan never bothers about half-hearted Christians, but once you are desperate for God and become burdened for the salvation of men, then all hell will oppose you.”
Alan Redpath, “Victorious Christian Service”
My prayer for our church and for myself this year is that we won’t be ashamed of our Savior & that we will be willing to stand up for Jesus… even if we are the only ones standing. If we do, there is no limit to what God can do through the family of CCLW!
