During the time NOAH was building an ark, he was very much in the minority – but he won in the end.

When JOSEPH was sold into Egypt by his brothers, he was a decided minority – but he won in the end.

When GIDEON and his 300 followers, with their broken pitchers and lamps, put the Midianites to flight, they were an insignificant minority – but they won in the end.

When DAVID, ridiculed by his brothers, went out to meet Goliath, in size he was a conspicuous minority – but he won in the end.

When ELIJAH prayed down fire from heaven and put the prophets of Baal to shame, he was a notable minority – but he won in the end.

What about you, my friend? Are you in the minority, standing with Christ, or are you on the other side? Why not stand where the faithful have always stood – in God’s minority. You will win in the end if you do so.

“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it” (Matt. 7:13-14).
