Learn to “Stand Alone”!
In order to choose the narrow way that has only a few people on it and to reject the broad way that is crowded with people, we must learn how to “stand alone” for what is right. This ability is vital, because when the world realizes that you are not going their way, they will put pressure on you to conform. Jesus spoke of this in His prayer: “I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world” (John 17:14).
“Standing alone” for God’s truth begins with an inward conviction and is expressed in outward words and actions.
