Committing to the Cause

Proverbs 31:10-31, Wisdom of Solomon 1:16 - 2:1, 12-22, Jeremiah 11:18-20, Psalm 1, Psalm 54, James 3:13 - 4:3, 7-8a, Mark 9:30-37


Just a brief word this Sunday morning. The title of this entry is a theme all of us should have every day in our earthly journey as an emerging Christian. The enemy is going to hit us hard from many different angles and the severity will be in many degrees. It will be easy to get distracted, then dismayed.

Nevertheless, if we keep our eyes on the prize of eternal salvation, if we stay committed to the cause of righteousness, if we give our all in all to the One who gave His all for us, then we will overcome our enemies and God's hand will be in the mix.

We will not want. We will not faint. We will not fail. Our God is a mighty God and He made us in His image, therefore, despite our faults, we are mighty as well. When we stray away from our beliefs, we stray away from our precious relationship with our Father, from where our strength comes from. In short, to keep the enemy at bay, from God we must not stray.

Stay positive. Stay faithful. Stay committed to the cause and be blessed.
