In every generation we who confess the Lord Jesus are confronted with well-established offenses against Him, testing our courage.

The moral nobility of a cause elevates no one above self-judgment, and crusaders can be the most self-righteous of all. But the lordship of Christ judges everything, including both the offenses He calls us to challenge and our own excuses for not doing so.
