When you live by faith in Christ Jesus.
When you love Him.
When you follow Him.
When you listen and follow His commandments.
You amplify or magnify the grace of God.
People know we are disciples when His love flows through us and touches the hearts of the lost, the lonely, the disadvantaged.
People know we are disciples when our voice is spoken boldly with power. The power we need to speak boldly comes from the Holy Spirit.
This is our daily bread.
We thrive on the opportunity to serve.
To tell and show others how Christ gives eternal life.
We step by and over those who’s will is to stop us.
We do not let discouraging words keep us form our appointed tasks.
Jesus told us we are to feel honored when we face opposition.
We are not to fear because as Jesus has overcome the world so have we.
We are now as He is. We live by faith in Christ
We draw strength from God through the Holy Spirit.
We have the peace of Christ. They peace is tranquility in the face of opposition.
People may tear us down.
People may tug at the moral fiber we represent.
The may even seem succeed by moving past us.
But in the end they have nothing.
They do not know God. They do not know Jesus. They can not see the Holy Spirit.
And that’s it. In the end they have nothing.
Let us not be discouraged.
We live by faith in Christ.
