Points to Ponder

4 Principles

#1) As Christians, we should work to win the respect and admiration of non-Christians without compromising our biblical convictions (I Peter 2:12, 3:15-16, Co. 4:5,6)

#2) When taking a public stand for our convictions, we should make sure we’re prayerfully selecting our concerns based on Scripture (I Cor. 9:22, Acts 2:47, Eph. 5:16)

#3) When taking a public stand in order not to compromise our spiritual convictions, we must trust God for His assistance (Eph. 6:10,12)

#4) When we make every effort to do God’s will, He will bless us for our faithful obedience
