“Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong. Let all your things be done with charity. I beseech you, brethren, (ye know the house of Stephanas, that it is the firstfruits of Achaia, and that they have addicted themselves to the ministry of the saints,) that ye submit yourselves unto such, and to every one that helpeth with us, and laboureth. I am glad of the coming of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus: for that which was lacking on your part they have supplied. For they have refreshed my spirit and yours: therefore acknowledge ye them that are such.” 1 Corinthians 16:13-18 (KJV)
Most men do not like seeing themselves as cowards, nor be called one; and in today’s world neither do women. It is easy to be a coward. One who refuses to act with justice, or judgment when they see an injustice is a coward. Sure there are times when the right thing to do is get the authorities (Police, or whom ever that authority may apply). Yet there are times the injustice may require an immediate act.
Christians. We cannot be cowards when it comes to our faith in Jesus Christ. We cannot be mambe pambe professors in a world that is dark in sin, and rebellion against our GOD and Savior Jesus Christ.
In Paul the apostle’s words above we hear him say, “Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.” The word “Quit” is “Be brave”. In the day when the government of our nation is refusing to hear the Word of God, and turning on and against the writings of our God, and that of the founding fathers of our nation; it is time for men and women of Christ Jesus to stand without fear, favor or compromise of faith.
Just a note: I love the United States of America; but I love my GOD and Savior even more. What He says goes. What He says is Law. What He says will come to pass. That is where I stand. Try and stop it if you dare.
Jesus Christ died on the cross, shedding His life’s blood to purchase/redeem us; He was buried, and He rose bodily from the grave. Trust Him as your Lord and Savior, and then you can live without fear. You will live for Him and His glory.
