When Life Beats Us Down, God Helps Us Up - Part II
Would you be willing to die for your faith in Christ? I have thought about this question this past week because our Bible text raises it. I found it hard to identify with this question. I don’t think I’ve ever faced death because of my faith in Christ. There may have been times I was in mortal danger because of the devil’s schemes. I am not clearly aware of any such situations. If that has happened, God intervened to protect me because I’m still here. I’ve never had a gun held to my head with someone saying “renounce Christ or die.” Would I be willing to keep the faith and die or might I deny Christ in the moment for the sake of my family or keeping my life?
