Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 07/31/16

This week’s scripture is from Luke:

jesus_white“Occupy till I come.”    (Luke 19:13 KJV)

Many are eagerly awaiting the Lord’s return. As our world becomes awash by tides of evil and perversion, and our lives become an ever-increasing struggle against the encroaching darkness it can be difficult not to fall into despair. Even those who are adept at prayer and spiritual warfare, who faithfully storm the gates of heaven with their prayers, are feeling the weight and oppression of the deepening darkness.

In the increasingly fierce spiritual warfare, some have been wounded and some discouraged; yet the Lord calls to his own; He calls his faithful, “Occupy till I come.” Let us therefore rise up, put on the armor of God, and march into the battle. Let us continue to preach the good news, baptize new believers, make disciples, and teach them His word. Let us continue to help and pray for the sick and the less fortunate, the oppressed and the lost. Let us continue to work and to be like Christ in this world until He returns.

May the Lord bless you with His protection and His strength as you trust in Him.
