Can't Cancel Christ
"Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor and gave him the name above all other names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue declare that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." Philippians 2:9-11
Today's cancel culture would love nothing more than to silence the voices of those in opposition to them--in opposition to socialism, complete control, world domination, and propaganda. There are times it feels as though they are winning the battle.
But we know better.
The cancel culture may silence our voices and censor us on social media, but they will never cancel the voice and the message of Jesus Christ. His message, His truth is the same yesterday, today, and forever, and it will never be silenced. In fact, the Good News of Jesus Christ thrives, it flourishes in the midst of persecution and struggle.
Sadly, I believe we have only begun to experience this.
So what do we do about it? What do we do about the cancel culture? God's Word gives us the answer.
1 Peter 2:15 tells us, "It is God’s will that your honorable lives should silence those ignorant people who make foolish accusations against you."
And, Matthew 10:19 reassures us with these words, "When you are arrested, don’t worry about how to respond or what to say. God will give you the right words at the right time."
Most of all, we must always be ready for the return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, telling everyone we know about His love and His truth, because one day when we least expect it, He will come again.
Matthew 24:37-39 says, "When the Son of Man returns, it will be like it was in Noah’s day. In those days before the flood, the people were enjoying banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat. People didn’t realize what was going to happen until the flood came and swept them all away. That is the way it will be when the Son of Man comes."
Are you ready, watching for His return if it should be today? Will the Master find you doing His will?
The cancel culture can do a lot of things, but it can never cancel out the blood of Jesus Christ that was shed for you and for me.
