Will You Stand
“Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.”
Over the years I have noticed that many so called Christians, do not speak out, and let others know that they are a Christian. You can observe Christians, in most areas of our society, in places they should not be. You can observe Christians, talking to people who are using bad language. You can find Christians, receiving dirty e-mails and messages, from so called friends. You can find Christians, working in situations that are unlawful, and that are not pleasing to God. You can find Christians dressing inappropriately, and indecent. I spent 45 years in health care, and had all kinds of situations occur, where I could have kept silent, and put up with situations that were not Godly. There is no excuse for letting people curse around you, as you can kindly tell them that you do not feel comfortable with their language. There is no excuse when you let people continue to send you dirty e-mail messages, as you can ask to be removed from their mailing lists. There is no excuse for you letting the current fashion trend cause you to dress inappropriate. When you don’t speak out, and remove yourself from these situations, you are turning a blind eye to sin. Our world is in desperate need of people who are willing to stand up for what is right. The people you associate with, need to know that you are a Christian, and that you do not condone their type of behavior. You should not be silent, and simply go along with the crowd, but should let them know that God is your savior, and that you are uncomfortable with their actions. It will not take long for people to respect your wishes, as they will change their behavior when they are in your presence. Will you be the person that will stand up for God?
