Your Faith WILL be tested!
How will one be able to face the future without faith? As the writer of Hebrews says: Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see (Hebrews 11:1). In the final days of the old millennium, many things were said and written about the world as it is at present. Violence continually erupts and signs of submissiveness, lawlessness and anarchy are commonplace. We often hear the clarion call reminding us that we live in the last days and that the Second Coming of Christ is at hand. There is nothing more that humanity can do to prevent the destruction of the world. These are some of the things that are so often said offhandedly.
Regardless of whether there is any substance to these predictions, and despite the fact that chaos is rampant, we are not to abandon the standards set by Christ. The fact that the world is in a desperate state does not give Christians the right or an excuse to give up in the struggle against the forces of the evil one.
Our Christian commitments last for a life-time. Despite the evil one’s efforts to undermine the Church of Christ … (YES, US … we are the Church of Christ), despite the pressures building up against the Christian faith, it remains our duty to EXALT the NAME OF CHRIST! Through His strength we must hold on to everything that He has taught, so that when He returns, we will hear these words from His Mouth ” … Well done, good and faithful servant … come and share in your master’s happiness.” ~ Matthew 25:23.
When the days of trial come, (I believe they are here now, and I know they will continue … ) Lord, please strengthen me in my faith so that I will not fail in truly being your faithful witness.
God bless and have a wonderful day ❤
