Sunday Evening Evangelistic Message #174
TEXT: Matthew 10:17-22
What if I told you this morning that loving Jesus Christ more than you love anything else could cause you to lose your spouse, cause you to lose your job, and cause your children to hate you. Or cause you to lose your life. Of course, you would think that that is unreasonable. However, in our text for today, we see that such things are to be anticipated for the person who is truly committed to following Christ.
I hate to be the person to tell you this, but if things continue the way they are going in America, I truly believe that there are going to be some Christians who are going to die because of their faith and therefore, their stance against the abomination of homosexuality, homosexual marriage, and the homosexual agenda. That is how demonic this movement is. I know it sounds far fetched but I truly believe that I could die for preaching against this sin. Please remember what I told you from Christian history, the saints did not die just because of their belief in Christ, they died because their belief in Christ had so dramatically changed their lives, and they would not go along to get along with the world.
In this series on facing conflict as a Christian, we are exploring Jesus' admonishment to His disciples just before He sent them out on their first missionary journey. Jesus tells them plainly that living the Christian life is not a bed of roses. It is not all fun and games. Instead, for those who are really serious about following Jesus, it will often mean a life of pain, suffering, and heartache. In light of our passage of Scripture today, I want us to consider three topics that are of importance when we are facing conflict as a Christian.
