In life you have to stand up for everything you believe in. Like standing up for your rights. Keep in mind that if you don’t stand for something then you will stand for nothing . It is very important to stand up for Jesus because He paid it all with His life.
We need to understand that when we make a stand for Jesus, it is a choice we make not to be subjected to the devils lies, deceptions and manipulations. It is a choice to not be defeated or broken by the traps of the enemy whose sole purpose is to corrupt our choices to stand for and represent Jesus Christ. When you stand for Jesus Christ it may be demoralizing and devastating but the end result will always be rewarding. It will be brutal yet beneficial. It will start out bitter but will only get sweeter as the days go by.
Why you may ask? Because when you are justified by faith you have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. With faith we have access to the grace of God in which we stand and rejoice in the hope of the glory of God (Romans 5:1-2). A song says, “On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand”. 1 Corinthians 16:13-14 tells us to watch, stand firm in faith, be brave, be strong and let all that you do, be done in love. Listen, the foundation of God stands sure( 2 Timothy 2:19) and no matter the circumstances it is when we stand fast in the Lord, that it encourages someone else(1 Thessalonians 3:7-8).
Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of mutilation! For we are the circumcision, that worships God in the spirit. Rejoice in Christ Jesus and have no confidence in the flesh (Philippians 3:2-3). This is where it gets serious, Paul tells us how to stand in Ephesians 6:10-20: First we must be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might then put on the whole armor of God, that we may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. Children of God we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, powers, the rulers of darkness of this world and against spiritual wickedness in high places. This is the reason we need the whole armor of God so that we will be able to stand on the evil day and stand with our loins girt about with truth.
My friends, truth will set you free (John 8:32). The truth is also in Revelation 3:20 where Jesus says; “He stands at the door of your heart knocking and if you hear His voice and open the door then He will come in”. Did you let Him in? What are you waiting for? Jesus is the only way to God, Our Heavenly Father (John 14:6). Once again will you let Him in? Tomorrow may be too late why not start today. Keep in mind there are only two places to go, Heaven or hell, which line are you standing in? To go to heaven you must accept God’s gift which is His only begotten son Jesus Christ (John 3:16; Romans 5:8).
