Music Moments: "People of the Cross" by Selah

Monday Music for the Soul: People of the Cross

This video was just released on April 28th of this year. It speaks loudly of the current state of persecution of Christ followers around the world.

We, as part of the body of Christ and as His church, have become complacent and distracted by many things. I have been guilty of it as well. Being overseas workers does not make us completely immune to losing our focus. We are here to bring glory to God. We are here to show Jesus to those around us.

What would you or I do if faced with the decision to stand up for our faith in JESUS? Would we deny Him and walk away unharmed? Would we pray for those who persecuted us? Could we forgive them? We are living in times when we need to be prepared to answer these questions.

Ephesians 6:10-13
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 
11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 
12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 
13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
