"And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching." Hebrews 10:24-25
As I was driving home yesterday, I heard an ad that touted a service for the godless, atheist and agnostic. It seemed to be about some sort of directory. I do not remember a lot about the ad because it spun me off into a thought process. We who are a nation formed under God have long since begun to reject Him. Further, those who serve Him are increasingly falling under persecution. Of course we continue to be known largely as a "Christian nation," however, it is a form of Christianity that is becoming increasingly distant from the Bible. Those who adhere to the apostles doctrine (Acts 2:42) are coming under increasing pressure for doing so.
Beloved, it is during these times that we need God even more, and we certainly need each other. We need not cower in corners at the rising tide of society's intolerance for religion. In fact we must plant our feet and move against that which threatens to destroy godliness. We have the Lord, we have the truth, we have the numbers and we must have the will. We must not remain quiet while Christian values are being assaulted and diminished every day. More, we must strengthen and encourage one another against the sometimes overwhelming pressure to give in to secular humanism and debauchery.
Make no mistake. We are under attack in every way imaginable. Let us close ranks with God and with each other. The victory has already been won.
