How much do you really love CHRIST? Are you sold out for the Gospel? Are you playing church, or are you a soldier on the battlefield? GOD called us to be witnesses for the Kingdom of GOD; we are called to be ambassadors for CHRIST. We are not called to sit back and watch sin permeate our communities; ruin our churches and destroy our families. How much do you believe the Word of GOD; and to what extent would you stand for the Gospel?
There are people ‘dying’ for the Gospel; but some people here won’t even ‘stand’ for the gospel. A person can be an atheist in their heart, while attending church services on Sunday. If your life doesn’t represent the call on your life, to live holy and pure, then do you believe? If you’re ashamed to preach the gospel, or speak the truth in the midst of an evil world and destruction, are you a believer? And if a person believes, but stands for nothing…isn’t that worse than not believing at all?
Is there a limit on your loyalty? Do you place a limit on how much you are willing to separate yourself from the world and its ways? Jesus said, “Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.” (Matthew 5:11) Jesus also said, “If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.” (John 15:19)
This says to me, that if we are not being persecuted and hated by the world….then we are doing this wrong. We should not blend in; but we should stand against! We are in the world, but not of the world! They are people in other parts of the world dying, and willing to die for their faith….how about you? Are you a witness; or are you a secret agent Christian?
This pregnant woman is being sentenced to death for her faith… http://www.cnn.com/2014/05/15/world/africa/sudan-christian-woman-apostas... Would you do it? Would you go to prison for your faith? Would you give up your lifestyle for the Gospel? How much do you love HIM; How deep is your faith; How committed is your walk? To live for Him, is to be willing to die for Him.
Christ died for you; would you die for Christ? "And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death." (Revelation 12:11)
