The whole reality of serving God comes down to one simple word — obedience. Do we love Him, respect Him, appreciate Him enough to do what He asks? Simple, right? It’s always easier said than done.
The establishment attacks our beliefs:
During the last year, and now the first months of 2021, we have seen an attack on the church that is unprecedented in our lifetime. It’s not just an attack on the church service itself, it is an attack on our very beliefs. Our belief is in what the Bible teaches is right and wrong, good and evil.
Some so-called Christians side with the unbelievers:
Probably one of the most disheartening things about this dichotomy is how many people who call themselves Christians have agreed with unbelievers, taken the side of the ungodly over the Scriptures. One is too many in my opinion. Instead of following Christ and His teaching, they have succumbed to fear instead of operating in faith, believing in things that cannot be proven (such as mask-wearing, not attending church, etc.) instead of putting the word of God first. Why can’t these people just admit they are afraid and have no faith or don’t really believe in God’s word? It would make it easier to see the truth.
God desires obedience:
The truth is, we should never allow anything to keep us from obeying the word of God. Even if we get it wrong at times, make a mistake, we should always come back and purpose to obey His word (the Bible). Obedience is what God desires.
It really is very refreshing to see so many standing on the promises of God, attending church, serving, helping others. To all of you who are keeping the faith, thank you, because it truly is an honor to serve with you.
Just a thought,
