Day 06 ï¿½ï¿½ Something you hope you never have to do.
Monday, April 25, 2011
This is going to be a short one, I think.
I hope I never have to survive the death of my child. I do not understand how one can survive the death of their child. It is just unnatural for your child to die before you do. For me, my son is my only child. I am not sure how I would make it, if he died before I did, so I hope I never have to go through that.
Also, I hope I never have to decide if I would stand up for Jesus, if it required my life. I know I would have to believe it would make a difference. I mean if someone held a gun to my head and said say.... I would probably say it, whether it was true or not, unless I had a compelling reason to believe that my sticking to honesty had a point. I have received this email where a pastor is just standing up to preach his Sunday sermon and some men come in with guns and ski masks. They basically tell the congregation, that if you are willing to take a bullet for Jesus, then stay. Most of the congregation leaves and then the guys in ski masks and gun raise the mask and say something like, okay pastor go ahead, the hypocrites are gone. My opinion, if someone came in and asked such a question, what is the point of taking a bullet for Jesus like that? What good does it do? Does it save someones life? Will it bring someone to God or repentance? I would have to say I doubt it, and as long as I doubted it, I would not stay. So I hope that I never have to face a situation where I have to choose my life or my religion.
