Our Greatest Weapon

Our God is coming; He will not be silent! Devouring fire precedes Him, and a storm rages around Him. On high, He summons heaven and earth in order to judge His people. – Psalm 50:3-4

Do you ever get a little overwhelmed or depressed by the news? Or, like some, do you try to ignore it?
This morning as I was doing my regular morning online “check-in”, I found myself wishing I could just escape and go live somewhere else. As a person who holds to a biblical faith and worldview, it is distressing to see that view at worst consistently trashed and at best often marginalized. At the same time, desertion is not an option. God has not sounded the call to retreat and He never suggested that the battle would be won on the field of politics. As it has always been, the greatest weapon in the offensive arsenal of a Christ-follower is loving truth lived in close proximity to a world captured by a lie.
Maybe I just needed to be reminded of the truth above. It’s not that we will ultimately lose, but rather that we must never fail to give up the fight.
Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen. – Winston Churchill
