Most of us know that we live in apostate days.  It is imperative that we take our Christian faith seriously.  In similar circumstances JC Ryle the 19th century Pastor encouraged believers of his time not to compromise.  He wrote,

“This is the church, which does the work of Christ on earth.  Its members are a little flock and few in number, one or two here and two or three there a few in this district and a few in that.  But these are they that shake the universe; who change the fortune of kingdoms by their prayers; these are they who are the active workers for spreading the knowledge of pure religion and undefiled; these are the lifeblood of the country, the shield, the defense, the stay and the support of any nation to which they belong.”

Ryle wrote extensively about the great heroes who took their faith seriously so that there was even an awakening at that time in England.

Brethren we must therefore, “earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.” (Jude 3) In order that, “Where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: that as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 5: 20-21)
