Today's devotion for today is based on Matthew 10:22, “You will be hated by everyone because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved”.
We are a holy people, set apart, and so unwelcome in a world turned against God. It’s no different if we are public proclaimers or everyday Christians living out our faith in our everyday lives. ‘Jesus is Lord’ remains an incendiary declaration – whether in Roman times or today’s world. Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground.
Please pray with me: Lord Jesus, my faithfulness to you is so easily intimidated by the hostility of today’s world. Help me to stand firm in you. Renew in me your Spirit of power, love and self-control. In your blessed name, I pray. Amen..
