We've received a number of encouraging notes and calls this week that have said about the same thing. They come because we continue to reach out to the local and trans-local community of believers for support, encouragement and intercession and perhaps as prompted by the Holy-Spirit. It is good to live out calling in community!
"Don't give up. You're making a difference in the lives of others and that's going to come with difficulty."
"I know you are warring against principalities and powers. Marriage done right is a powerful weapon against the devil."
We're looking to history, both Biblical and secular, for encouragement. What others have done, we can do.
First, the secular.
Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never--in nothing, great or small, large or petty--never give in, except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy. - Winston Churchill
And now, the Biblical.
Jesus. He completed the mission He came to do. Period.
What one man can do another can do. By His life in us, as He strengthens and sometimes carries us...we can do, one day at a time, one conversation at a time.
