Courage to Stand

A great problem in America is that we have an anemic and watered-down Christianity that has produced an anemic, watered-down, and spineless Christian who is not willing to stand up and be counted on every issue. We must have a virile, dynamic, aggressive Christian who lives Christ seven days a week, who is ready to die, if necessary, for his faith. We need Christians who are ethical, honest, gracious, bold, strong, and devoted followers of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Prayer for the day

I realize how spineless and pampered my Christian walk is. Give me Your courage, Lord Jesus, to follow You more devotedly.

    Very hard these days to know exactly what is the right thing to stand up for.

  5. Vickie says:

    I try very hard to talk to others about things like abortion, gay relationships and other issues. My problem is trying to find the right words to make an impact. It’s very frightening how many people defend and celebrate sin.

  6. Wanda says:

    So true.

  7. Gerry says:

    Pray daily for the courage to stand up for what you know to be right and true. As members of God’s Holy family, He is faithful to empower and strengthen us when we ask. We will ultimately prevail. The end is already written.

      Amen again, Gerry!

  9. M Thomas Mathew says:

    People hardly verify facts. (Proverbs 18:17) Yield to the whims and fancies of the wicked. Don’t have the courage to at least say that truth will be established someday and triumph.
    Any story sounds true until someone tells the other side and sets the record straight. Proverbs 18:17 (TLB)
