Read Isaiah 40 to see how little God needs our defense…

Philippians 1:12-17 tells us…

12 But I want you to know, brethren, that the things which happened to me have actually turned out for the furtherance of the gospel, 13 so that it has become evident to the whole palace guard, and to all the rest, that my chains are in Christ; 14 and most of the brethren in the Lord, having become confident by my chains, are much more bold to speak the word without fear.

15 Some indeed preach Christ even from envy and strife, and some also from goodwill: 16 The former preach Christ from selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my chains; 17 but the latter out of love, knowing that I am appointed for the defense of the gospel.

Those who argue for the sake of arguing are carnal. 1 Corinthians 3:3

We are to simply speak and live the Word of God, so that people will come to repentance. 2 Timothy 2:22-26

We are to speak the Word with boldness, but Godly boldness produces fruit. Acts 4:29-30

We must be able to back up our faith with the Word, knowing full well that there will still be those who will still want to argue. As long as that person is receptive to the truth of the Word of God, you continue, but when they throw out the sound doctrine of God’s Word, you walk away. 2 Timothy 4:1-5 Luke 10:10-11

Jesus told us that if a person hates you for your standing on His Word, it is because they hate Him first… Don’t take it personal, because all that matters is that God loves you. Matthew 10:22 Mark 13:13 Luke 21:17 John 15:18 John 3:16

We can never repay Jesus for what he did, but He still expects us to be making the payments. The payments are not in the form of currency, works or deeds… but Love. Romans 13:8

You are a beautiful blessing when you preach the Word! Romans 10:15 Isaiah 52:7 Nahum 1:15
