Item description for Courage: Persevering in the Face of Fear by Jon Johnston...
Overview Christians are admonished to rid themselves of the fear and concern they may face when tackling the causes that are closest to God's heart: defending the weak, fighting for justice, and countering compromise and deception.
Publishers Description In our 'live and let live' world, it is tremendously unpopular to take a firm stance that one belief is right and another belief is wrong. Just as presidential candidates who change their promises from day to day, depending on which special interest group they are addressing, Christians often find themselves wavering on beliefs and giving vague answers to tough questions. Jesus Christ lived in a world much like ours today, a society that looked down on those who spoke uncomfortable truths. Yet He called for His followers to live life differently. As the author writes, 'Those of us who claim to be Christ's servants must tackle the causes that are closest to His heart: Defending the weak. Fighting for justice. Countering compromise and deception.' Rid yourself of the fear and concerns that keep you from exhibiting courage in all areas of life. Draw upon the Lord to take a stand for what is right, and against unbiblical life decisions. Paper.
