That’s it! I’m disconnecting from social media and going off the grid! This world is ridiculous.
Being a hermit sounds like a great alternative to the craziness.
Why bother trying? Nothing will change.
I start seeing myself as a world changer, a warrior, a follower of Christ who is here to spread the gospel.
Notice that the early church didn’t run and hide when faced with adversity. They were bold. Not stupid, mind you, but bold. When they had to scatter because of persecution, the church grew.
Kind of ironic, isn’t it? That’s not what you’d expect.
Look at the church today in China and the Middle East. The body of Christ is growing exponentially! They are being persecuted and martyred every day.
Their persecutors can’t figure it out: Why can’t we defeat these Christians? Nothing we do can stop them….
And yet, in North America, Christians start crying like a bunch of babies when things don’t work out.
And then we lay on the floor like a toddler and pitch a fit.
Wow. I bet all of those sinful wretches want to be Christians now. You really showed them how strong faith can be in the life of a believer.
Read the Bible.
Jesus was hated by the world and He told us we would be hated too.
The disciples told us things would get really hard before Jesus came back.
What are you expecting?
Is your faith only strong when things are going great? Is it really that wishy-washy?
If so, I wouldn’t call that faith at all.
