You talkin’ ta Me?? ~ August 27

You talkin’ ta Me??

Bring it! I’m Not Afraid!

Who is going to harm you if you are eager to do good? But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed, “Do not fear their threats; do not be afraid.” 1Peter 3:14

Unfortunately, we are often harmed for doing good. The world we live in is full of evil people who do not know God and wish to do harm to those who know Him. To those who mock my faith in God and want to do me harm, I say, “Bring it! I’m not afraid!”

Jesus walked this earth as a man, and he died a horrible death on the cross for us. For us! He didn’t do it for Himself—He had nothing to prove—He did it so you and I could have the opportunity to know God’s love and have the hope of eternity with Him. And His only hope is that we love Him.

As God’s children, we also have nothing to prove. We will probably not die on a cross, and hopefully, we will not die a horrible death. But no matter the cause of the death of our physical bodies, we will go on to spend eternity with our Father. We have nothing to fear.

    Great write Charlie! As I was reading I was thinking how spoiled and whiny babies I am / we American Christians are and the persecution we go through is nothing compare in other countries, you know for the name of Christ and I couldn’t help but stop pray for those in Syria and Egypt that are dying all because of their faith in Christ. Thanks for this one. Love it.

    • I’m glad you like it, Bart. I can see us standing shoulder-to-shoulder, grinning at the bad guys, and sayin’, “Bring it!”
