Topic: Courage to Stand [Billy Graham Devotional 8 June 2019]
It is no shame to suffer for being a Christian. Praise God for the privilege of being in Christ’s family and being called by his wonderful name! —1 Peter 4:16 (TLB)
A great problem in America is that we have an anemic and watered-down Christianity that has produced an anemic, watered-down, and spineless Christian who is not willing to stand up and be counted on every issue. We must have a virile, dynamic, aggressive Christian who lives Christ seven days a week, who is ready to die, if necessary, for his faith. We need Christians who are ethical, honest, gracious, bold, strong, and devoted followers of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Prayer for the day:
I realize how spineless and pampered my Christian walk is. Give me Your courage, Lord Jesus, to follow You more devotedly.
