How courageous are we to stand up for Jesus? The answer is in understanding your relationship to Jesus. I would just ask you to finish that phrase– I am. . . How would you answer that? Oh, I’m a banker, teacher, I’m an engineer . That phrase may change–the answer, the continuation of that phrase may change– based on the subject topic, but if it just came out of the blue– somebody says finish that sentence for me. Would ” I am a Christian” be the first thing that comes to your mind? Are you willing to take a position, to take a stand? Are you strong enough to handle the criticism and condemnation that will come from some people? Are you willing to let people know that you are a believer in Jesus Christ? I want to challenge your own perception of who you are when you say “I am” today. Simply stated, my subject is I am a slave to Christ.
