STAND FIRM


STAND FIRM
When I was in Scotland, a man approached me in Frazerborough and asked, “Is your father named Jack MacArthur?”
I told him yes.
He said, “Your father came to Ireland at least thirty years ago with two other men to hold a revival in Belfast and all around Ireland. I went to hear your father speak, and at the meeting I received Jesus Christ and dedicated my life to the ministry. I am a pastor because the Lord used your father to minister to me. Would you tell him that when you see him?”
I told him I would.
Then he asked, “Where is your father now?”
I told him he was ministering like he always had.
He asked, “Is he still faithful to the Word?”
I said, “Yes, he is still faithful—still standing.”
“Good,” he replied. “What happened to the other men?”
I said, “I’m sorry to report that one became an apostate and the other died an alcoholic.”
Three men went to Ireland and ministered to many people. But thirty years later, when the dust cleared, only one was left standing.
In 1 Corinthians 10:12, Paul said, “Let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall.” Satan doesn’t want us to stand.
