Being a Man Pleaser: What Are You Standing For?

If the enemy isn't shooting at you
you aren't in the battle.

Beware when all men speak well of you.

This life is short.

We have one opportunity to stand for the Lord and His truths.

It might be okay for your neighbor to talk about being politically correct.

And the TV shows reassuring us that we need to accept things that God directly despises.

But we need to take a stand. 

We can't be afraid of what others think.

We need to stop worrying about how we will be perceived.

True change occurs when we speak it.

 "How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?"

-Romans 10:14

If you love your neighbor you will speak the truth (with kindness, patience and love).

I am so grateful for different ministries because I have learned so much from them. They did not hide God's truths, but they proclaimed it from the rooftops! Imagine had they had kept silent, then many lives would not have been changed--mine included.

I am thankful to the Lord for these sites and friends.
I am thankful that they did not keep silent. 

I believe the world is a battle field and we need to take our positions.

 Whose kingdom are YOU fighting for?

Remember friends...

We might get attacked, even by well-meaning Christians--by family or friends.

 But we have already counted the cost
our lives paid for at the cross

 and there is no turning back.

Hi June,

Thank you for posting on this subject today. I have been surrounded by women lately in our local body who have allowed satan to have a foothold in their lives and our church body is suffering because of it. From issues of immodesty to unbridled tongues and beyond, these issues are spreading like poison and hindering the work of the Lord among the people. I am losing friendships because I stand firm in what I know to be irrefutable truth. I was encouraged today when I read your post.. I know there are others who need it too! :)

Thank you...and thank you, June, for your comments. Even those of us who live in an area where we are surrounded by fellow believers realize that our standards for "Christian behavior" are often different...and taking a stand can be difficult at times. God bless!

Amen! We need to take a stand for the truth. We must not, cannot be ashamed of Christ and what He has given and taught us. We must be the light in this dark world. I consider it a privedge to be a part of this battle against evil forces. However, we do not fight this battle alone! Thats the amazing part about it. With God nothing is impossible, but without God we are weak and helpless. Lets choose to live every moment for the Lord, standing up for what we believe in, despite all the turmoil and confusion around us.
Let us not be distracted by other christians who choose not to follow the Lord completely. It is so much easier to judge them than to love them sometimes, but our greatest calling on earth is to love! Its is one of the greatest commandments. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength, and your neighbor as yourself. God bless all of you! Stay strong!

Thankyou for this, each scripture and the challenge to choose whose Kingdom we serve are all things God has been saying to me this last two weeks very directly. Thankyou.
