THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Doc asked his patient, "How'd ya get that black eye?"
The man answered, "Well, my wife said SHUT UP,
and I thought she said STAND UP!"
If ye were of the world, the world would love his own:
but because ye are not of the world,
but I have chosen you out of the world,
therefore the world hateth you.
Light from the Word.
Standing for Christ is battling with the world.
We can do battle with love in our hearts.
We can stand for Christ and strive to not be offensive to others.
But, if we live for Christ, we'll certainly be in a battle with the world!
A friend of the world (worldliness) is an enemy with God!
If you have surrendered to Christ, then He has
"chosen you OUT of the world!"
This world is NOT your home!
You're just passing through!
Your citizenship is in that glorious heaven He is preparing for
those who love Him! (1Cor. 2:9)
being WITH Christ in this life
Jesus already won the battle over death, the grave, and hell!
And, He grants those who surrender to Him the privilege of
joining in HIS VICTORY!
But STAND UP!
