American Christians have had it easy for a very long time. It really hasn’t cost current generations anything to follow Christ. That’s a blessing, but it has sadly created a sense of apathy and entitlement in the church, causing Christians to always want the easiest, most convenient path. That kind of faith will never withstand the tests that are most certainly coming for the church! We must begin right now to put our own desires aside and make certain that we are rooted deeply in Christ, and that we are living wholly for His mission.
