“Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.”
When you research the word "Christian"
It means "Christ Follower" to be Christ-like but somehow this world has turned it into a whole other meaning!
The world says..To be a Christian simply means to show kindness and decency but it goes much deeper than that!
If we call ourselves Christians but we don't believe the WHOLE WORD OF GOD and we don't live our lives in front of the worlds eyes..how will they ever see the truth of Jesus? How will they learn the truth and leave their sins so they can have their souls saved and make it to Heaven? Tolerating someone's sinful life isn't showing them Love at all! Revealing to them the error of their ways is showing them Love because you Love them enough to save their soul!
Jesus wasn't a follower of the things of this world..Jesus HAD FOLLOWERS who were taught the word of God so they could help make a difference in this world! We are called as Christians to Love People Enough To Help Save Their Souls..That's what true love really is and that's what Jesus did when he walked this earth and that's what we have to do now!
If we simply live for the standard of what the world considers "Christian" then we are only feeding them sugar and candy coating everything!
If you are only telling them what makes them "feel better" but they aren't taught the word of God and what is sin..How will they ever learn?
The problem with this country right now is that there are too many "Baby Christians" who allow the world to keep them silent!
If you hide away or allow someone of this world to influence you..then that means that you are a Baby Christian! That makes you a follower of this world and not a doer of the word of God!
I will tell you something..
Being kind and telling them only what they want to hear all the time, the nonsense that everyone will make it to Heaven..Just isn't going to cut the mustard!
You can't get into Heaven unless you have the truth in your heart and you realize that Jesus is the only way!
If we don't stand up and start sharing the truth with this world and tell them what sin is then who will?!
The government won't! the political parties won't! the media sure won't!
Their only chance of hope to make it to Heaven is through your faithfulness to God and obeying the written truth of his word!
You are the living example of what Jesus did on the cross!
You may be the only bible that they ever read!
If you stand up now for your faith and sharing it with the lost world then you can help save some souls from Hell!
If you remain quiet or ride the tide of this worlds lies then you will not only lose their soul but also yours!
If you don't believe me then this verse from the word of God should convince you that what I'm telling you is truth and I'm doing my part of revealing that truth to you!
“So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven, but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven.”
