Will You Go With Him all the Way?

JudgmentI’ve often wondered what I would do if someone pointed a gun at my head and asked if I were a Christian, or if I were to be persecuted in some other form. I never knew quite what I would do, but I read this passage last week that reminded me of what our answer should be: Luke 22:32-33, 60-61.

Reading that passage should definitely give us our answer of what we should say. Personally, I could not live the rest of my life knowing I had disowned my Savior. I can’t even begin to imagine getting to heaven one day knowing I had missed the perfect opportunity to die an honorable death, but instead I chickened out (Philippians 1:20-21).

With most of my readers being in America, we know for a fact that we have freedom of religion (praise the Lord). We don’t have to be afraid of being killed for our faith. We don’t have to meet in secret. Now don’t get me wrong: we are all going to face persecution in one way or another. What I’m getting at is this: we need to be ready in case this ever does happen where we live. One way we can begin to be prepared is by  not being ashamed of the Gospel.

We shouldn’t be ashamed that we know love that comes from the Gospel, no matter what the world says. We shouldn’t be ashamed that we have peace that surpasses all understanding. We shouldn’t be ashamed that we know what real joy is.

When I was younger, I wrote songs and poems a lot. I wrote one called, “Put to Shame.”  Here are some of the lyrics:

When I walk through the doors of my school,

When I walk through the doors of my friend’s home,

I want everyone to know, I’m for You.

I want to be put to shame,

I want to be put in someone’s chains,

I want to be put behind bars so the whole world knows who I’m for.

This song says it all. We should actually want be put to shame. We should want the world to know we are Christians. Don’t chicken out if someone is questioning you about your faith. Don’t chicken out of a tough situation because someone is picking on you for your faith. Stand up for what you believe in.  Keep fighting and stand firm. So my question for you today is, “Will you go with Him all the way (Romans 1:16)?”

  2. This is so true, Alyssa! Despite what other’s may say, we must be ready to defend our faith and firmly know what we believe (1st Peter 3:15). We aren’t to be ashamed of God’s word because it’s true and He wants us to know learn about Him every day. We are to allow His word to transform us and we’re to reflect Him and His word in our everyday life. 😊
