Though this video was made specifically with Fathers in mind the story behind the hymn Stand Up for Jesus is amazing. The author’s friend had just that week been forced from his pastorate because of his sermon against slavery. While being out at a farm the following week he died as the result of a freak accident, but his final words encouraging his friend to take a stand for Jesus resulted in the hymn we sing today; Stand up stand up For Jesus. It reminds us that standing for God does not always lead to popularity or success nevertheless it is what Jesus asks. God bless you this week. May God grant each of us the courage and willingness to stand for the truth!
