It takes only one spark to set a forest on fire. It’s the same way with love. In a hurting world it only takes a smile for some people to feel the love of God. Today’s world has become a place where most hear what they want to hear.
Soothing and beautiful words without Christ create a grand illusion of splendor which turns out to be void later. The more deceptive it is the more beautifully it tries to cover. As untruths become more beautiful it’s hard for many to resist.
Standing for the truth many times means having to stand alone. Just like the beginning flower opens on a budding bush, it’s not very pretty at first. As other flowers start to open it becomes very beautiful. When it seems we are standing alone for what is right and popularity is not in our favor God is with us. He is making us strong and teaching us endurance. In God’s timing the truth will be revealed and others will then stand with us.
Jesus said to the people who believed in him, “You are truly my disciples if you remain faithful to my teachings. And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
