Every day, it seems evil is gnawing away at what we know is right. Every day, we are expected to accept as normal, things we know go directly against God’s command.
Worse still, these endless compromises and tolerances that are being forced upon us by popular culture, are becoming the law of the land.
So, how are we to live in a society that opposes everything we believe?
Our Saviour was tested in the wilderness by the devil. Fasting for 40 days and nights, Jesus was tempted by the devil to turn stones to bread to ease the pain of hunger and prove He was the Son of God. But strengthened by God’s Word, Jesus resisted the devil! He said, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”
Satan continued to attack Jesus by misusing scripture. But Jesus returned again to the Word of His Father, saying, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’”
Then the devil promised Jesus all the kingdoms and all the riches, of all the world, if
only He would bow down and worship him. But Jesus again found strength in God’s Word, saying, “Be gone, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God and him only shall you serve.’”
Live. Rely on the Word. Do not test the Lord. Worship and serve Him only. The Word teaches us everything we need to live in this world!
God’s Word commands us to proclaim Him to our lost and broken world,
and that’s exactly what your support of Precept makes possible.
Right now our ministry is rapidly growing in Canada. Every day, an army of believers who have been trained and equipped in the Inductive Bible Study Method are making new disciples and strengthening the faith of believers in almost every Province.
Because you are such a critical part of Precept, we are dedicated to helping strengthen your faith too, and equipping you to influence friends and loved ones in your life. That’s an important part of the “why” behind the ministry resource we are offering today; Living in a Society that Opposes Everything You Believe. This offer expires April 15th, 2016.
The other “why” behind Living in a Society that Opposes Everything You Believe is—
TIME IS SHORT.
Knowing how to live as Christ commanded is more important than ever. Our nation is in big trouble, and we are surrounded by people who oppose what we know is right, and our right to believe it—even the leaders in our churches are embracing lifestyles and legislation that go against God’s Word, in the name of tolerance. We MUST stand strong!
So please give generously today to further the work of Precept as we reach the unreached and provide the tools that allow people to better understand the One who brings salvation. And be sure to request your copy of Living in a Society that Opposes Everything You Believe so you, too, will be strengthened by God’s Word when you are alone in the wilderness.
For Christ and His incomparable Kingdom!
