“Be strong, Polycarp and play the man".
In today’s live stream, Joseph Z picked up from where he left off in his teaching on how to deal with a jacked-up world. He brings to our knowledge the element that is vital in surviving in a difficult culture, which is through reminiscing the lives of the early church and how they were able to endure to the end and survived the unrighteous government that stood against them. He shared with us the story of Polycarp(the martyr) who died for the sake of Christ and how he showed kindness to his adversaries even at the point of adversity.
Moving on, Joseph instructs us to adhere to the word of God to Polycarp at his point of trial, where He was charged by God to be strong and be who he has been called to be. He went further to disclose that the word “atheist” used to be a word used in referring to Christians in early Christian settings. He charges us to imitate the lives of the saints in our daily walk with Christ; taking the word from Hebrews 6:9-12 which charges us not to be sluggish but to imitate those who provide a demonstration of faith and patience.
More importantly, Joseph instructs us to look up to believers in Jesus who gave it all, endured, and through their faith and patience inherited the promises of God. He went on to inform us that one of the ways to survive a jacked-up world is to imitate the martyrs of God and those who offered themselves for the sake of the kingdom of God.
