A small word, yet a great thing



God wouldn’t have given us the command to ‘go into all the world and preach the Gospel’ if He didn’t also give us the courage to do so.

Speaking fearlessly about God and His holiness is no easy task when you are faced with hundreds of people who either hate God, hate you, or both.  The truth is never accepted easily.  As human beings, we don’t want to turn from our evil ways.  Only God can open our eyes to make us see our need for Him.

As Christians, we will face rejection, persecution, and hate every day of our lives.  We will need to stand against temptations, speak with grace, and love our enemies as Christ tells us to.  Do not become discouraged when the people of this world turn against you.  We are not made for this realm, but for somewhere, something so much greater.

Courage is something many of us lack, but it's so easy to come by when we ask God for it.  We need His strength and courage to live in this world.  Without it, we will falter and break, but He has overcome this world.

‘But just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the Gospel, so we speak, not as pleasing men, but God who examines our hearts.’
- 1 Thessalonians 2:4
