A Lesson for March 30th

Romans 5:6 For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 Indeed, rarely will anyone die for a righteous person — though perhaps for a good person someone might actually dare to die.

Every few days I hear of Christians who die for their faith and occasionally a congregation decimated for testifying about Jesus Christ to people who fear faith different from their own religion.

I wonder if following Christ in America has become too easy. There is little social risk for attending church or not attending church. Sunday has become a day for sports and recreation. We give up chocolates for Lent, when we might rededicate our lives to pointing beyond ourselves to a new reality in Christ, so others might experience God’s grace. But telling others about our faith could be socially risky.

For what would you dare to die?
