I received this in my in box today and it is timely for all of us who struggle in our faith, finding this Christian life a tough act.
I confess that there have been days in my life where I have harboured the thought that following Jesus is just too hard – why not just take it easy and enjoy life ”normally” like the majority around me. It is exactly when these thoughts come that I remember I gave up my life at the Cross and that God chose me for His everlasting purpose.
Like Keith Green sang, “I want to be a pleasing child until that final day.”
So get out that rusty Sword of the Spirit, put on your helmet of salvation – the whole armour of God and get back into the battle.
Keep going; the end is in sight!
