FAITH IN TOUGH PLACES

“All the saints greet you, especially those of Caesar’s household” (Philippians 4:22).

As campus statistics continue to climb in the incidence of teenage pregnancy, drug abuse, and crimes against property, school is a difficult place to live for Christ.  Because most people punt their faith when they punch the time-clock, and exchange principle for profit, the workplace can be a very challenging environment in regard to faith.  The pressure to compromise and conform is overwhelming.  Thus, even one’s social life becomes an arena hostile to a steadfast faith.

Yet, I’m convinced that if there could be saints in the persecuting environment of Caesar’s household, there can be saints in any of these other challenging environments.
