Stand too close?

“If you stand too close to Christ, those who hate Him will also hate you” Pastor Stoper

Matthew 10: Whoever acknowledges me before my Father in Heaven

The lines will be drawn between good and evil, God and Godlessness. You and I will have to decide where we will be.

I’ve been doing a study with Pastor Stoper for the past year and have learned a tremendous amount, deepened my faith and my knowledge of the Bible.

I would think it’s not possible to stand too close to God…. but truthfully, Pastor Stoper is right… there will be people who hate you just because of the Christ for whom you stand.

When Christ returns, I want to be found faithful to His calling. I want to stand as close as I can. How about you?

I dare say that most bible believing people want the comfort of knowing Christ but aren’t willing to take the pressure when the persecution gets tough. I pray the Holy Spirit will continue to guide and strengthen those that He is calling to be warriors for His Names sake.

Be blessed today, my friends.

I am a musician, an engineer, a mentor; my desire is to leave things better than I found them; I am a sister, daughter, wife, mother, aunt, friend. Suicide breaks my heart; Cancer breaks my heart; Human trafficking breaks my heart; Seeing people make bad life decisions breaks my heart. I am thankful for the One True and Living God who saved me from myself and, through His Son Jesus Christ, has saved from my sins; I am confidently persistent, passionately determined and boldly creative so that I may inspire others to live a life that ultimately matters.
