Daily Inspirational Encouragement


By: Linda Kirby/WGON

We are blessed to be able to worship Jesus in this country — even as we start to lose our rights, we can still worship our Savior. However, in many countries, it is against the law to worship Jesus. You can’t even own a building to use as a church, yet, they gather in a parking lot no matter the weather and worship together. Scripture tells us that fearing people is a dangerous trap, but trusting the Lord means safety (Proverbs 29:25). Yes, man may kill you if you are found to be worshiping. He will lock you up for decades or for life if you are found preaching the Gospel. The western churches are not as eager to worship God when man tells them they can’t. We learned that just recently during the so-called pandemic and subsequent lockdowns. Few churches defied man’s threats. Most churches obeyed. Yet, in communist countries, the faithful meet in parking lots in subzero weather to pray together and learn what God says in His scriptures. It’s a sad state of affairs for the western church. We need to become red-hot for Jesus like those people who live in dictatorships. Throughout Scripture, we find when man suppresses worship, then worship will happen, anyway. The US is getting close to the point where worshiping will not be allowed. We had a taste of that recently: it was their warning shot. So, I say we need to draw closer together, worship as if our lives depend on it, because it does. Dark days are ahead for Christians in the west. Gather together while you can. Pray, worship, learn God’s word while you can. For, one day soon, it will no longer be allowed.
