Stand Firm-Thursday Thought

Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 
Ephesians 6:13 KJV

What do you stand for? God created each and every one of us with an intended purpose. The only way to find this out is to seek Him. His ways, mindset, plans, and the like. So often Christians miss out on God’s best because they are afraid to stand up for Him. We fear ridicule, being different, or ostracized. But that is exactly what happened to Jesus!

Opposition can be a sign that you are standing up for the truth. Don’t run from it, but accept it as a necessary consequence. The world doesn’t like the truth, but it is still the truth. At the end of this life what will be more important; how many people liked you or that your life was a message to the world about who Jesus is? What do you stand for? Is it worth it?
