"You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden."
I think you’d agree with me when I say that our way of life is under unbelievable attack today. One of the biggest reasons for this is that the Western world is becoming increasingly secular and humanistic. And as we watch the news and see so much turmoil and unrest in the streets of some of the largest cities around the globe, we see firsthand the cold hard truth that life apart from God will always devolve into chaos.
The problem is that too many Christians today are playing it safe. They're standing in the shadows and keeping their mouths shut rather than courageously standing for Christ. And of all times, of all places, of all people, now is the time for men and women of faith to stand boldly.
I truly believe that our world today is not beyond hope. But as a believer in Christ, you must firmly declare that any real hope is only found in Jesus Christ. You must get past the world's way of thinking that to claim truth is 'narrow-minded' or 'intolerant.'
If you had a magic pill that could cure any disease, would you bury it in your backyard? Jesus is the only answer for the world’s ills. So stand firmly for Jesus and allow His light to shine through you and give hope to a world searching for hope!
WHILE THE WORLD SPINS IN CHAOS, REMEMBER THAT THE ONLY HOPE IS JESUS AND ALLOW HIS LIGHT TO SHINE THROUGH YOU!
Are you precious in HIS
When the heavenly Refiner quickens our hearts with a little self-knowledge, we begin to understand that the dross of rebellion, pride, hatred, covetousness, conversation in the lust of the flesh and disobedience which is in our hearts is measured in tons. It also teach us that the precious metals of love, submission and obedience, if found at all, are measured in ounces.
Trusting in Faith over Feelings
As you go throughout your life, you will have emotional ups and downs. Yet your faith, if it is a real faith given by God, can remain steady. That's the kind of faith that follows God even when you want to follow the world.
