Are you facing increased opposition when you share Christ accurately in your workplace, neighborhood, or church?
I'm seeing increased name-calling, anger, and resistance when people share Biblical truths (especially when they talk about morality, accurate views of God, discernment, or Christian responsibility).
And a good portion of the resistance comes from professing Christians misusing the “Judge not” argument.
God expects us to warn people of error even if they don’t listen (Ezekiel 33:1-20). He’s “nit-picky” about His Word (Matthew 5:18).
But just like the Old Testament prophet Jeremiah we can be hurt by the insults from the people we’re trying to help (Jeremiah 20:8-9).
So today, I want to give a shout out to those of you who are contending for the faith, teaching Christian responsibility, standing for God’s morals against a growing wave of compromise (Jude 1:3).
Never forget: “Great is your reward in heaven” (Matthew 5:10-12).
