I heard a snippet of an Instagram reel the other day that resonated with me so I wrote it down to figure out why.
The audio track says, “I will not be less for you to feel better about yourself.” I realized why I felt those words is because it seems the world tries to tempt us to make the expression of our faith small as to not offend our neighbors.
But John said, “Jesus must increase and I must decrease.” John 3:30 And as He increases in us, we will be compelled to speak truth even if it rubs others the wrong way.
Believer, do not stifle the Holy Spirit within you to make the world more comfortable. “Let your light shine in this crooked and perverse generation.” (Matthew 5:16 & Billy Graham)
Your words of truth may lead others to a saving faith in Jesus “rescuing others by snatching them from the flames of judgement…hating the sins that contaminate their lives.” Jude 1:23
