Will You Stand Up For God?

In a day where standing up for the truth is not popular, many Christians close their eyes and tiptoe around sensitive subjects trying to avoid confrontation. Our personal comfort often dictates our actions as we seek to travel the road of less resistance in our lives. Will you speak up and say you don’t agree with abortion, homosexuality, and sleeping around? Will you sacrifice music, movies, and popular shows that contain poison  in the name of God? Phinehas did what was right and not what was popular or enjoyable, and he was blessed because of it. What will you do?

“And behold, one of the people of Israel came and brought a Midianite woman to his family, in the sight of Moses and in the sight of the whole congregation of the people of Israel, while they were weeping at the entrance of the tent of meeting. When Phinehas the son of Eleazar, son of Aaron the priest, saw it, he rose and left the congregation and took a spear in his hand and went after the man of Israel into the chamber and pierced both of them, the man of Israel and the woman through her belly.” (Numbers 25:6-8 ESV)
