Good morning all,
The word of the day is “pusillanimous.” Towards the end of his letter to the church in Corinth, Paul gave a few salutations and encouragements. In the middle of all this, he did what is said by any true pastor and evangelist. He urged people in the church to love one another and stand firm together in their faith.
“Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men and women of courage; be strong. Do everything in love.” ~1 Corinthians 16:13-14
My question is: what are some of the areas in your life that you are most diligent? Paul talks right here about carrying out the will of God. The Corinthian church had to deal with potential false teachers coming into their congregation, and so they needed a reminder to be strong and stand together. This showed maturity for them as a community. I pray that you would look at your own ability to mature just a little bit more today in the faith, as we build a strong community that makes a difference for Jesus.
Praying for you,
