Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 04/28/13

This week’s scripture is from Joshua:

Jesus Christ risen“Now therefore, fear the Lord, serve Him in sincerity and in truth…”   (Joshua 24:14)

In our time there is tremendous social pressure to compromise the Word of God to fit the prevailing moral fashion of the age, to accept what should not be accepted, to tolerate what should not be tolerated, to turn from the truth of God to the lies of the devil. On the surface this seems to be a social and cultural battle, but do not be fooled. It is the forces of darkness forcing their way onto the world stage, no longer staying hidden in the dark recesses of humanity, but boldly challenging God’s people and God’s truth. Do not bow before this onslaught. Fear God and shun evil. Do not compromise the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Stand firm and resolute in the admonition of His grace; and speak the Word in love and in truth.

May the Lord bless you to stand strong in the truth of His Word.
