Our culture has deemed it politically incorrect for us to be outspoken about our faith in God, the truth of Jesus as His son and our Savior. Our first amendment freedom of speech can only be restricted if we allow it. That may become reality in the not so distant future. I hope not. But that freedom is tenuous.
What cannot be restricted is our behavior. Do we show our neighbors our peace in the midst of our eroding and even hostile culture? Do we demonstrate hope when others are skeptical and in despair? Are we ready with our answer as to ‘Why?’
We trust God–literally. Ours is a fallen world. We don’t fear death. For us, as Christ followers, it’s only a transition.
