Weekly "Call To Worship" Encouragement
Staying in the Fight
2 Timothy 2:11
Here is a trustworthy saying:
If we died with him, we will also live with him; if we endure, we will also reign with him.
Those who have been baptized in Christ,
have died to Christ.
For many of us that was many, many, many years ago.
Through that action and our belief in Christ we received eternal life.
The hard part for us is to endure.
2 Timothy 3
But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God– having a form of godliness but denying its power.
The hard part for us is to endure because Satan wants to discourage us.
But we must not give up
we must stay in the fight
even if it's not easy.
Part of the reason why we meet here is to encourage each other.
2 Timothy 4:7 Paul said,
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
This is victory!
As you come worship God today, think about
Going for the victory,
fighting the good fight,
Enduring the hard work,
Not letting Satan discourage you,
Racing to the finish line,
Being with God for eternity.
That's a win. That's a victory.
Please pray with me,
