I Timothy 6: 11-12, “But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness. Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of witnesses.”
There is a clarion call to every believer to take a stand for Jesus Christ and for everything the kingdom teaches. We must not be complacent in our faith walk. We must not be afraid to stand alone if we have to. 2 Timothy 1: 7 says, “For God has not given us the Spirit of fear, but of power and of sound mind.” We must not be afraid of what the world can do to us, instead, we should fear the God who has the power over all things.
Jesus Christ must be the center of all we do as Christians. We must be committed to the Lord, be dedicated to faith. John 4: 34, “Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work. Psalm 40: 8 says, “I desire to do your will, O my God; your law is within my heart.”
Our piority is to do the will of God whenever we find ourselves. Declaring the truth to a dieing world.
There is a need to be loyal to our God. Our allegiance must be to God even in the midst of a lawless world. No matter the situation you may find yourself in, take a stand for Jesus, for truth. Apostle Paul said in Gal. 2: 20-21, “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
We belong to Jesus, we are guided by the principles of the Kingdom of our God. Do not allow things of the world to distract you in this crucial hour of our Christian walk. Take hold of the word of God, meditate on the word, increase your time in prayer and position yourself to hearing from the Holy Spirit. Do not be carried away by the vanities of this world.
The book of Ecclesiastes 12: 13 says, “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter. Fear God and keep His commandments, For this is man’s all, For God will bring every work into judgment including every secret thing, whether good or evil.”
Don’t just love Jesus, fear Him and flee from ungodliness.
I encourage you to take a stand for Jesus. Keep your eyes fixed on the Lord. His grace shall carry us to the end successfully in Jesus name. Amen.
