Enemy With The World


“Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword."
- Matthew 10:34 -

Christian will make enemies.

It will be best to make none.

But if to do the right, and to believe the true, should cause him to lose any earthly friend, he will count it but a small loss, since his great Friend in heaven will be much more friendly, and reveal Himself to him more graciously than ever.

Christ is the great Peacemaker.

But before peace, He brings war.

Where the light comes, the darkness must retire.

Where truth is, the lie must flee.

He who has the friendship of the world is an enemy to God.

But if we are true and faithful to the Most High, men will resent our unflinching fidelity, since it is a testimony against their iniquities.

Fearless of all consequences, we must do the right.

Better a brief warfare and eternal rest, than false peace and everlasting torment.
