Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 10/14/12

This week’s scripture is from 1 Timothy:

“…godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.

“Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.”      (1 Tim. 4:8b,16)

Our ways are not God’s ways, but we know that His way leads to life abundant and life eternal. This present age is a great challenge, for godlessness is spreading, goodness is waning, the attacks of the enemy increase, truth is viewed with contempt, persecution is growing as darkness is rising up. The people know not where to turn. Yet we know, for the Lord tells us to persevere, to rise up and stand, to pray, to read aloud the word, to be godly, to preach the good news, to speak truth into a dying world, for the light of Christ destroys darkness. Let us repent; let us stay true to the Word, and let us live in the truth of Christ Jesus.

May the Lord bless you to persevere until the end, sharing the good news of Jesus Christ.
