DO NOT BE ASHAMED OF THE GOSPEL


Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them; for the Lord thy God, 
he it is that doth go before thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. - Deuteronomy 31:6
Put on the whole armor of God, that you may stand against the wiles of the devil. - Ephesians 6:11

When we step into eternity God will ask us what we did with what He gave us! Have you chosen to please God and offend the world or offend God and please the world? We as Christians are here to conquer evil NOT coexist with it! We are encouraged in 1 Timothy 6:12 (Fight the good fight of faith [in conflict with evil]; take hold of eternal life to which you were called, and for which you made the good confession of faith in the presence of many witnesses.) We are Gods light in the darkness places. We are His warriors.

Jesus tells us in Matthew 5:16 (Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your father which is in heaven.) Jesus is telling us believers to stop hiding in the comfort of the church, stop cowering under the threat of persecution. Do NOT be ashamed of the Gospel, take authority and turn on the light of His word!

Only Jesus through His finished work on the cross has provided you with more than enough strength, grace and faith for every feeling, every situation, and every circumstance you will ever encounter in life. God has equipped us with His armor, the helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness, the belt of truth, the sword of the spirit (word of God), the shield of faith, and the shoes to spread the gospel of peace. Be braver, stronger, and smarter! Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the very forces of darkness be bold, be strong, be courageous, have no fear, do not compromise, You are a warrior!
