Have you thought lately about “standing firm” in the faith no matter what may come each day? It is so easy to lose sight of all of the benefits we have in Christ Jesus! The world, the flesh, and the devil all seem to pull at us all the time. So it takes not only faithfully being in the Word each day, but also remembering what we have read and then living it out during the day. There’s the rub: head knowledge or heart knowledge? Oh, may we all draw near to the Lord each day for His enabling power to do what He has called us to do! Surely, we cannot do anything profitable apart from Him!
“Only conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or remain absent, I will hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind, striving together for the faith of the gospel; in no way alarmed by your opponents—which is a sign of destruction for them, but of salvation for you, and that too, from God” (Phil.1:27-28).
