Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 01/31/16

This week’s scripture is from James:

jesus_white“As you know, we count as blessed those who have persevered.”   (James 5:11a)

In these days with the rise of apostasy and wickedness it is more important than ever that we persevere in faith. In a time where the world is turning over, where licentiousness is called tolerance, where what is evil is called good, where what is sin is called choice, where lies are called truth, where righteousness is scorned and depravity is celebrated, those who belong to the Lord must not waiver in standing for the truth of God’s word and the righteousness of Christ. Let us not compromise God’s divine truth with the shallow wisdom of man. Such seasons come and such seasons go, but the Word of God stands forever true and unchanging. Let us stand and be counted with God; let us stay in His blessing and in His love.

May the Lord bless you to persevere in truth in these days.
