The Pushback

 

The world today is tough for those who follow Christ. Sin has always been around since Adam and Eve, but it has evolved and taken on many forms. We as believers in Christ need to be on guard even more.

1 Peter 5:8-9

8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 9 Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.

 

 While we are blessed to live in a country where we are free to worship God without persecution we must be careful about becoming lazy and watch out for those who try to twist the words in the Bible. Sharing your beliefs has also become increasingly difficult as well. Not because it’s difficult to express your beliefs but the backlash that comes when your ideology doesn’t meet that of others. Remember all we can do is share Christ, we can’t force someone to agree or accept Him.

Romans 1:18-20

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools.

Continue to give your all in your relationship with Christ, this world will try to tear you down and tell you that you are wrong, but you are a child of the one true God. The Creator of all things. Stay strong and grow in Him and continue to share the love that Jesus showed us.
