We love this 1 Corinthians 16:13-14 passage;
“Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous. Be strong. And do everything with love.”
It’s the ultimate bullet point list. These five key points give us the clues to living in this broken world as we wait for Christ’s return. The spiritual enemy will attack and try to destroy us with pride, division and sin. We need to Be On Guard of his workings and Stand Firm In The Faith and be rooted in the Gospel. For it is the Gospel that breathes life and it's in the Gospel where all our faith should be. And when it is tested, we need to Be Courageous to defend it and do what is right. And we know it won’t be easy but we can Be Strong because we have the power of the Holy Spirit living inside us. And as Christians, we should be on fire for the Great Commission in sharing the Gospel. Our action are our loudest testimony, so in everything we do, do it with love. For it is by our love that others will begin to know Christ.
