Are you ashamed to publicly tell others about your faith?
I came across the above words in our Salvation Army songbook the other day when I was just flicking through the pages for nothing in particular. But they struck a chord with me, and got me thinking about whether I really do stand up and defend God, or whether I just sit in the background and pretend I don’t care.
I’m far from perfect, but when I thought about it I have “stood up” to those who have dismissed God as non-existent or criticised him when they’ve commented on my blog posts. However I know than in person I’m not nearly as good at “standing up” for God.
I therefore pray today that whenever and wherever others dismiss God or criticise Him, He will give me the courage and the words to stand up for my beliefs. I hope you will too!
