I will stand alone, if it means standing for God. Can you say that? I would like to think you could, but if you're wavering with that question, allow me to help you.
Many years ago, a man named Jesus came down from Heaven. Let's stop there for a moment, Jesus came down from heaven. He left a perfect, peaceful place and chose to come to this sinful, imperfect earth as a man.
He was beaten, bruised, and tortured for us. He shed His blood just for us. Jesus died to make a way for us to be with Him in Heaven. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. John 15:13 says: "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." Jesus said these words in the next verse as well (John 15:14), "Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you." No man had, has, or will have as much love as Jesus does. He not only laid down His life for us, but resurrected on the third day, and later ascended into Heaven to prepare us a better life.
We are His friends, if we do what He asks. He's a perfect friend, and He loves us more than any of us can even begin to imagine.
So I'll ask the question again, Can you stand alone, if it means standing for God?
Take that question into serious consideration this weekend. Jesus stood up for you and this entire world, I would hope you could do the same for Him.
