Today’s Christians make up one of the most despised groups on the face of the planet.
We are mocked, judged, condemned, ridiculed and maligned.
None of these things should move us.
But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God. ~Acts 20:24
We must push deeper into the Word, affirm God’s will for us and press on toward Him.
Nehemiah faced great persecution while he was trying to rebuild the walls of his precious hometown of Jerusalem.
God had miraculously provided what he needed to get the job done, and even brought him from captivity to do it; but he still faced the mockers every day while trying to do God’s will.
We need to purpose in our hearts, no matter what opposition comes our way, to obey the Lord. Do what He says. Follow His Word. Hold firmly to the principles He laid out for us.
No matter the mockery, obey God anyway.
