Good morning all,
The word of day is “crown.” What a fitting word, given our goals and aspirations as students, workers, and military peeps. Paul was very proud to have so many with whom to share the Gospel. Although he was miles away, he always had such a love and joy for his friends. He writes:
"Therefore, my brothers and sisters, you whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, that is how you should stand firm in the Lord, dear friends!"
Now this is the kind of friend that I want. Paul did a ton of ministry and saw each person in the body of Christ as special. He knew that the road to life with JC was tough and so he reminded his peeps to stand firm! My question for you today is: Who are the friends in your life that are pushing you to be a better follower of Christ? We must always remember our ultimate goal – life in Christ. My prayer for you today is that God would surround you with the right individuals to help you achieve that.
Praying for you,
