Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong. (1 Corinthians 16:13)
Thought for the Week: As Christians we must always be on guard. Discerning that which is good and evil. To never allow compromise to remove us from our positions in the faith no matter the obstacle. To stand firm in our faith does not mean sticking to one’s certain beliefs but rather having confidence in following Jesus as your Lord and not allowing anyone to convince you otherwise.
Prayer: Father we pray, that our love may abound still more and more in real knowledge and all discernment, so that we may approve the things that are excellent, in order to be sincere and blameless until the day of Christ; having been filled with the fruit of righteousness which comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God. Amen.
The Apostle Paul prayed this prayer for Christians in Philippi. (Phil. 1:9-11)
