Every time I read these words, written by the Apostle Paul, I get a chill down my spine. Oh, how I want that proclamation to be mine. Hardship will strike. Temptation will attack. Persecution might even come knocking at my door. But despite what this world brings, I want to maintain my faith in Jesus, the only true Deliverer. Lord, give us strength to remain faithful, and may we be the example the world needs to find its way to You.
