Christians often are called to stand for principle. Today, Christians are martyred for their faith in many parts of the world. When faced with a choice, these saints choose principle, and death, over renouncing faith in Christ, and living on earth.
In the United states, we face choices everyday, do we stand for Christ, His ways and His principles, or do we fold? The pressure may come from being expected to laugh at an off color joke, lie by omission to get through a situation or to condone public policy that does not uphold a Biblical standard.
A choice we have is, give up, or stand tall. Will we be remembered as one who stood for the Lord, or surrendered? Is the road to surrender really easier?
