Settle it in your minds…

This morning as I read Luke 21 I was challenged by Christ’s words. After explaining coming persecution and being brought before the rulers of the day for is name’s sake he tells his followers “This will be your opportunity to bear witness” Christ through the spirit will give them the words to say and wisdom in these situations.

While Americans don’t face the same type of persecution of some around the world (violence, imprisonment, death) we do face social persecution and in these situations we find our opportunity to bear witness of Christ. When life presents us with financial problems, health issues, or even abundant success; this is our opportunity to bear witness. I am challenged by this idea because I don’t bear witness well. I have plenty of opportunity but I need to settle it in my mind to endure for Christ and bear witness of him in every situation. This is my challenge today…
