Christian, do you realize this?
- Someone wants to kill you.
- Someone wants to destroy you.
- Someone wants to wipe you out.
This is the truth.
This is your reality.
How do you feel about this?
- Do you understand this?
- Do you even care?
Are you willing to make a stand?
Are you willing to fight instead of wimp out?
Are you willing to win for a change?
- You enemy has nothing but contempt for you.
- Your opponent fights you spiritually, physically, and mentally.
- Your foe is relentless.
- Your enemy does not quit, give up, or give in.
- Your opponent is always attacking aggressively.
- Your foe has a goal to thoroughly defeat you.
When your enemy causes you to trip up, your enemy is fully aware that it cannot get the better of God. But you, that’s a different story.
Keep in mind, your enemy’s contempt for you is pressing forward with the intent of destroying any intimacy you have with Jesus Christ.
You are hated because Jesus loves you.
What can you do?
Nothing except rely on the Holy Spirit sent to rescue and empower you.
If you’ll do this, you’ll see attacks as opportunities and leap for joy. James 1: 2-4.
I want people to like me.
I don’t like it when some people don’t like me.
I like it even less when I realize some people hate me just because I’m a Christian.
I wish I could change the contempt, the hatred some have.
I’ll try to do that for our common good.
Here’s one way this might happen:
Leap for joy when you’re despised and under attack.
This behavior infuriates the enemy of Christ (and you).
You are attacked and hated when you dare to reflect the truth and love of God.
Please realize what you’re up against in the spiritual realm and don’t allow it to spill over into your physical realm.
You have an opportunity to stand firm and see the glory of God working through your circumstances.
Also keep in mind you’re loved for being a follower of Jesus.
