Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. Do everything in love. – 1 Corinthians 16:13,14
As Christians, we need to be on our guard. Guarding against the effects of temptation that only lead to misery and despair; guilt and shame. We need to stand firm on our faith in Jesus Christ no matter what circumstances we will face in our lives, easy or difficult. He does not change which means we can rest in His provision. Be courageous no matter what storms may come our way, we choose to walk through them. Call on the name of the Lord and be strong. But above all this, do it all in love.
The turbulent changes plaguing our country and even the world right now is changing everyday. The economy, wars and conflicts seem to be on the news all the time. They are constantly changing, and putting us in circumstances as Americans we have probably never faced before. Despite the instability in our nation, we can put our hope and trust in the One who does not change. He is Jesus the Christ.
