"Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong. Let all that you do be done with love." - 1 Corinthians 16 V13
"Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God." - Hebrews 12 V1, 2
Even Jesus Christ our Lord, being God in flesh, endured the cross. The Lord Jesus set aside His glory and lived a humble life. He was despised of men and they mocked Him even as He died on the cross. But Jesus conquered death the third day and He sits at the right hand of God the Father. Let us also be immovable, brave, and strong, and live with endurance the life set before us. Even as we go through the times of difficulty, or trials, let us look unto Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith. Praise the Lord!
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
