‘Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?’ Romans 8:35
When I first started this business and began to share my testimony on social media outlets, many well meaning friends encouraged me to dub down the ‘Jesus stuff’. They were afraid I would be persecuted and possibly lose business.
Christians in the first century were persecuted in ways that are difficult to discuss with adults much less children. We do see some persecution in America, and while severe for some, it does not compare to being crucified upside down, burned at the stake or disemboweled like what happened in Peter’s day.
Yet many ‘joyfully ‘walk this road. Why were they so joyful?
When you understand that you were once dead but are now resurrected; once dressed for hell but now clothed in heavenly garments; once dirty, but now clean; once forgotten, but now pursued; once lost, but now found; you get a glimpse of what these martyrs knew and understood and it becomes more clear as to how they could walk into the den of a lion singing and praising God.
Be encouraged brothers and sisters. God’s voice will thunder redemption and salvation from heaven as each of us finishes our race if we remain in Him.
And because of His great love, this resurrected body will sing from the rooftops of his glorious blessings and promises, whether it is a threat to my business or not. Jesus is my audience.
