Stand up for what is true. Often we’ve heard about standing up for what you believe in, but actually we should only stand up for what is true. Read Galatians 2:11-13.
But when Cephas came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he stood condemned. For prior to the coming of certain men from James, he used to eat with the Gentiles; but when they came, he began to withdraw and hold himself aloof, fearing the party of the circumcision. The rest of the Jews joined him in hypocrisy, with the result that even Barnabas was carried away by their hypocrisy.
Galatians 2:11-13 NASB
Paul saw that others were not doing what was right. He didn’t get carried away with that, but instead was willing to stand up for what was true. He wasn’t borhered or intimidated by who the other people were, but was only concerned about what was true.
How do we respond when we see people not following what is true? Do we seek to restore them to a right relationship with Christ? Paul was willing to stand up to see what is true be held up. Are we?
