I am grateful that Paul did not have the attitude of many Christians today.
1 Corinthians 9:19- 19 Though I am free and belong to no one, I have made myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible.
Today many believe faith is a personal choice to be kept to oneself. Others believe it’s the job of the clergy to spread the news.
Is that what the Bible and Word of God teaches?
Matthew 5:13-15 – 13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. 14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 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. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
No, we are to shout it from the mountain tops.
Are we ashamed? If we are not then we need to allow the Spirit to be bold in us.
Persecution is coming quickly in this country. It’s already started. Stand up for your Lord, so the day you stand in front of Him, He will acknowledge you and say well done.
On the other hand, you do not want to stand in front of Him with nothing to present Him.
