Acts 21.13

What would you die for?

In some countries the police will come. They will break down your door. Without warning, without exception, they will drag you, your family and even the visitors in your home into the streets, into the jails or executed on the spot. All because you disagreed with those who are ruling your country.

What would you die for?

Would you hold fast to your denominational ecclesiology (your churches beliefs and traditions)? Would your knees buckle before the judge for your ideas and principles? Would you go to the stake to be burned, thrown into a pit and stoned or whipped beyond recognition for a belief?

What would you die for?

I know many people would say, yes and amen, that they would die for Jesus. Paul was prepared to be bound and dragged before the Sanhedrin and to die for the name of Jesus. But are you really prepared to do that? Is there enough evidence in your life to convict you of a being a follower of Christ without you uttering a word?

If you are prepared to die for the name of Jesus, are you prepared to live for Jesus?

7 For not one of us lives for himself, and not one dies for himself; 8 for if we live, we live for the Lord, or if we die, we die for the Lord; therefore whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s. Romans 14

What are you living for?

Grace and Peace.
