I used to listen to a preacher who liked to lean forward and say, “If you’re going to be a Christian, be one!” We need that more than ever today. In a world where our brothers and sisters in Pakistan are being killed for their faith, we all need to decide which team we’re on.
If you’re on the world’s team, put on their jersey.
If you’re on Team Jesus, put on His jersey.
In these difficult days, we need Christians who aren’t ashamed of their faith. Let me assure you of this: Compromise will win you no friends. You’ll be “too Christian” for the worldly crowd and “too worldly” for the Christian crowd. Might as well stand up and be counted.
If you’re going to be a Christian, be one!

“His faithfulness remains from generation to generation”(Psalm 100:5).
Often parents wonder how their children and grandchildren will turn out. This verse gives us hope for the future. When our time comes to leave this world, we can depart with confidence because we serve a trans-generational God.
We come and go, but God’s faithfulness continues.
That means we can trust him with the generations yet to come. Here is great hope for parents who worry about what will happen when they are gone. The God who cares for us will take care of our children–and our grandchildren too!

Never be ashamed to ask for God’s mercy. If you deserved it, you wouldn’t need it. That’s why we are saved “according to his mercy” (Titus 3:5). It’s also why his mercies are “new every morning” (Lamentations 3:23). His mercy is greater than your sin. He’s ready to clean up the mess you made in the last 24 hours. Lay hold of God’s mercy. There’s plenty to go around. A fresh supply just arrived from heaven this morning.
