Christian Strength

Last night, a prominent conservative political comedian said that because of the persecution against Christians, even in America, the Christians should lay low and zip it. So, with this mindset, evidently, in order to be a Christian you have to disobey the Lord? God said things like, “He that is in you is greater than He who is in the world” and “Go therefore into all nations teaching… And I will be with you always” and “Whoever is ashamed of me, I will be ashamed of him” and “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding” and “Blessed are you when men hate you and persecute you and say all kinds of evil against you falsely on account of me for your reward is in heaven.” So, it doesn’t sound like  Christians are supposed to fear this world or men who choose to do evil. It looks a lot more like we are supposed to keep serving the Lord and speaking truth in Love to win souls to Him. Are we to hide? Are Christians to be quiet and never fulfill every Christian’s mandate to share their faith? No. The time of this world’s rule is about up. The time of Christ’s return is close and then we who are faithful will be with Him forever in heaven. That is a very long time. We cannot even begin to get how long that is. If I am persecuted, let it be so. I know what awaits me after this incredibly brief life is over. Are you going to threaten me with heaven? Really? Those who persecute us should be told what awaits them after their incredibly brief life is over.

    • The church worldwide is facing serious persecution. We are all one body of differing parts and nationalities. Christians around the world are under severe persecution. We in the United States are only being bullied, mocked, discriminated against, kept from jobs in some cases, etc. However, that could change anytime and we need to never fear that but rely on our Savior as our peace and joy despite anything else. He is faithful and stronger than we can imagine.
