I will not just say things to ‘tickle your ears’. (2 Timothy 4:3) The truth has to come out. Scripture will point us to the truth. Then it is our responsibility to make that change and draw nearer to Christ.
We won’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but we will let You transform us into new people by changing the way we think. We will have perfect peace because we trust in You. (Isaiah 26:3) We want Your will to be done in our lives.
May we, in drawing nearer to You, drop all barriers that would prevent us from reaching out to each other in love, especially to those of the household of faith. May we ever be encouraging one another in love and in good works.
