Courage to love // 14-02-19

“Remember to stay alert and hold firmly to all that you believe. Be mighty and full of courage. Let love and kindness be the motivation behind all that you do.” 1 Corinthians‬ ‭16:13-14‬ ‭TPT‬‬

As believers and witnesses for Christ we need to be vigilantly alert to the enemy’s strategy to make us ineffective! His aim is to cause unhealthy doubt, to stoke offence, to sell us lies that will reduce us to the level of our feelings and make us diluted and lukewarm at best, or bitter and twisted at worst. He loves strife and division and anything that will be a distraction to the good news about Jesus getting out! It takes courage to choose the way of love and kindness, when my feelings tell me different, but let’s hold firm to the truth we were taught and stay the path that Jesus commanded us to walk. He is worth it all 🙏🏼
