Refusing To Bend

Book Introduction

If you are like me, you don’t like long introductions to books. If anything, this part of the book is often skipped over. So, I will keep this short.

There might be three reasons why you might be reading this book. The first is maybe you found it by chance and decided to get it out of curiosity.

The second is that this book was given to you, and now you almost feel “obligated” to read it.

And third, is that you actually want to stay firm in your Christian walk, or need to be challenged and even need some help on how not to bend to the world. I hope and pray it is this last reason.

More and more people today are bending in their faith and Christian walk. Turning away from the truth of the Word, and instead believe in what they want to believe in. Today’s age is one where we, more than ever, need to be grounded in the solid, unwavering truth of God’s word.

This devotional will challenge you to become, what I like to call a good rebel. A good rebel questions what the world calls normal pushes back against the crowd, and stands firm in the truth.

As followers of Jesus, we’re called to live differently. The world tells us to follow our hearts, but we know that our hearts can be deceitful. The world says to have the perfect body, but we know that godliness should be our goal. The world tells us to put ourselves first, but we know that living a life where we give to others is more rewarding and kinder.

This is why we need to be rebels, to go against the crowd, which is not easy. imagine a large city, like New York City, and everyone is going in one direction. And if one person starts going in the opposite direction, that person is going to face some resistance. But, keep pushing, you are headed for a much better path.

We have no choice to be in the world, but we do not have to conform or abide by the world. We must stay firm and refuse to bend to the world.

I pray this devotional challenge and help you on your path of being a good rebel. And guide you on some truths that we need to stay steadfast in.
