Never be afraid to make a stand for Him. He told us the world would not take kindly to our witness of His works and truth of the Gospel message. And never forget that the devil is always behind the naysayers, prodding and rooting them along. Know your enemy, and know you will not be welcomed with open arms for standing for Him; and the pain of rejection will be much easier to take.
Remember, Jesus said:
"The world hates
Me because I
Testify that their works are evil!"
Jesus told us the path was Narrow,
and the going will be difficult!
However, this path leads to the Narrow Gate....
and that gate is the only way to eternity.
Hang tough for Jesus. He hung tough for you!
