Acts 22:3-16 OR
Acts 9:1-22
Ps 117:1bc, 2
Mk 16:15-18

At times it can be hard for us to believe in the Lord and the love that he shows for his creation.  Our beliefs can be challenged by those who do not believe or are highly skeptical.  They will sometimes insult us or isolate themselves from us because of our beliefs.  We need not to respond in anger to those who challenge us.  Our responsibility as believers is to help spread the word of the Lord to all we encounter, and if some who hear us believe then they will be saved.  Those who do not believe and oppress us will be condemned.  We must not let the challenges we face in our lives hamper our beliefs in the Lord, but instead take them as an opportunity to strengthen them.

I have always found in my life that when people challenge my convictions that they become stronger.  I enjoy people challenging what I believe because it gives me the opportunity to reexamine what I stand for.  It gives me the opportunity to change some minor things to make them stronger as a whole.  In the end, my beliefs are always stronger and more immune to the oppression that I may receive because of the criticisms.  Let us be encouraged to embrace the opportunity to have our beliefs challenged.  Let us take this opportunity to make our convictions so strong that they will never be broken.

God Bless.
