“The chief danger of the Church today is that it is trying to get on the same side as the world, instead of turning the world upside down. Our Master expects us to accomplish results, even if they bring opposition and conflict. Anything is better than compromise, apathy, and paralysis. God give to us an intense cry for the old-time power of the Gospel and the Holy Ghost!” A. B. Simpson

How very true. You know you are doing something right when all the spiritual dwarfs come out of the woodwork criticizing you for your judgmentalism. Nothing brings out the opposition like love.

Yes opposition is our lot in this world if we are following Jesus, for we live in enemy-occupied territory at the moment. Thank God that we are just passing through, merely pilgrims in the way to our eternal home. Oh Lord give us eyes to see past this temporary world! God bless you and thanks for commenting 🙂

Thank you! And thank God this isn’t our home…as you say, just passing through. 🙂

A True Christian is a Peculiar sort and will be Persecuted by many!

Very true, Cathy. It’s good to be peculiar. It’s good to be different. And it’s great to live for Christ in spite of the world.

Amen Cathy – all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. May God bless you sister 🙂
