I had an interesting little temptation this morning. I was writing a general email to folks -- from my other screenname- in which I talked about being a born-againer being in a book of transgendered persons. I realized that one of the people was a liberal who disliked born-againers. I was about to remove her name from the general address SEND TO and send her a solitary email in which I removed all mention of being a born-againer. But the Lord reminded me of what destroys the seed...the cares of the world and when persecution comes people are disloyal to Jesus and deny him. It took bravery but I sent the general email.
This morning I was listening to a Christian program which showed a tape of what had happened on the View where poor Elizabeth -- the bornagainer-- was being slammed by Rosie O'Donnell. Rosie was saying fundamental Christianity was just as bad as fundamental Islam. And I was just stressing out. I was shouting to the hubby: "Turn the channel! Turn the channel! You know I HATE being hated."
But God reminds us that if the world hated him, it would hate us.
I can only pray that God will strengthen me that I no longer fear the hatred of the world. That's the only way to conquer in Christ...be loyal to him.
