Meet the world's disdain with confident grace born of faith

-A A +A
By Louis Abel

The other evening I heard a man on the television emphatically state that he did not believe in the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  I could sense that he had a real feeling of scorn for those who do.     

Prominent men in public places have also expressed their contempt for “born-againers.”  This is typical of the general attitude toward orthodox Christians and the truths they confess. 

Although the world may not show personal animosity toward a believer, yet he looks upon him as “narrow” or “bigoted.”  While he may treat Christians in a rather cordial manner, the fact remains that the worldly man is against us.  We can never know when this secret hostility will flame out into violent persecution.

In the face of the world’s hatred what are we to do?  The answer is:  Witness.

We are not to return “evil for evil,” or return scorn to their words of contempt.  As graciously and as sweetly as God enables us, we are to give to them a message of life.
