“But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good; abstain from every form of evil.”
(1 Thessalonians 5:21-22)
How do you intimately know God if you are not taught from the scriptures? If they do not know what is good then they cannot tell what is evil. Therefore, they cannot abstain from evil. Everything has become grey to them. We must get to know God in order to know what good is because no one is good but God.
Where are you oh Christians who are Godly? Where are you who are boldly proclaiming the gospel? Are you ashamed that you will not even speak out for what is good? You are not godly because you do not really know God. You are not bold because you do not have faith that God can help you. You are ashamed because you think someone might think you are strange for standing up for what is good. Should not the gospel be on our hearts and minds all day long so that it is on the tip of our tongue just waiting to come out? Should we not be ready to give an answer to show what we believe? Are you so ashamed of your Savior that you will not tell about Him? You should be ashamed that you are NOT proclaiming Christ to all people.
Are you, oh Christian, making excuses for not telling of your Savior, for not living a godly life, for not following Christ as you should? What excuse is good enough? There is no excuse, oh Christian. There is no excuse for you. None for you to give for not following Christ. None for you to give for not living a godly life. None for you to give for not telling of your Savior. There is NO EXCUSE!!! Come now, oh Christian, let us get to know God, let us spend time with Him. Let us tell of His Son, the Savior of this world. Let us boldly tell of Him and His great Sacrifice for us. Let us live a life like Daniel lived so that no one will be able to find anything wrong against us. Let is follow after Christ. Let us, oh Christian, live a Holy and godly life. No more excuses. Today is the day that the revival starts within our hearts and our minds. Today is the Day that we boldly stand for Christ. If God is for us who can stand against us?
