High on Sentiment, Low on Sacrifice
“Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.” 2 Timothy 2:3
Many of us talk a good religion. We’re like the young man who called his girlfriend and said, “Sweetheart, you are so precious to me. I love you so much I’d fight wild beasts to be by your side. I’d tread on broken glass to hold your hand….And if it doesn’t rain, I’m going to come over and see you tomorrow night.”
Many believers are high on sentiment and low on sacrifice. We don’t know what it is to fight for the Lord Jesus Christ. If you’re looking for an easy way to serve the Lord, you can forget it.
We’re called upon to endure hardness as a good soldier of the cross. How much hardness would you endure?
