Hello, friends! Our family recently embarked on our summer tour, so I decided to start blogging again in celebration of leaving! (Just kidding!). Seriously, though, it is easier to blog on the road than on the farm, so I have decided to do a weekly post during this trip. And since I sometimes get the opportunity to preach at the churches we sing at on Sunday mornings, I have decided to convert some of my sermons into blog posts. (This is called killing two birds with one stone!). So here is the thought for this week.
In reality, though, the world is crying out for something real and tough and strong- something worth standing for. The world has tried money, immorality, and entertainment, and they have found that none of that satisfies! Will we be a good example to them and endure suffering as a good soldier? Christian, you will stand and give and account before God one day- will you be able to say that you took a stand for Him during your time on earth?
I close with 2 Timothy 3:12 "Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution." Today, let us ask ourselves- "Are we included in all?" If so, why aren't we experiencing any suffering? There is only one answer- "we aren't standing anymore."
