"Be STRONG!"

 

“Be STRONG!”

 

Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.      1 Corinthians 16:13

 

If there was anything that the Apostle Paul, wanted the TRUE BELIEVER of the Lord Jesus Christ to KNOW, was that they NEEDED  to personify their FAITH in Christ Jesus with COURAGE and STRENGTH, and they SHOULD NOT let their GUARD down, but to be able to STAND FIRM in what they BELIEVED, which was their FAITH in Him.

 

Being a Christian, in those days, was NOT popular nor sought after.  The Christians of Paul’s time were persecuted and even put to death for their beliefs.  Yet Paul encouraged them to BE STRONG, and face their fears with COURAGE.  And to STAND FIRM in their FAITH.

 

And after they GUARDED and STOOD FIRM in their FAITH, and had COURAGE and STRENGTH. The God of ALL grace, who called them to His ETERNAL GLORY in Christ, after they had suffered a little while, would Himself RESTORE them and make them STRONG, FIRM and STEADFAST in their FAITH. (1 Peter 5:10) In Paul’s letter to the TRUE BELIEVERS in Ephesus, he tells them:  “Finally, be STRONG in the Lord and in His MIGHTY POWER.” (Ephesians 6:10) Paul is encouraging them to be on GUARD, to STAND FIRM in their FAITH, HAVE COURAGE, and BE STRONG in the Lord and TRUST His MIGHTY POWER. 

 

We NEED this ENCOURAGEMENT now.  We NEED to KNOW that our God is ALMIGHTY, He KNOWS ALL things and wants us to be STRONG in our FAITH in Him.  He LOVES us MORE than we COULD EVER know.  And when we are STRONG in our FAITH, He will be our STRONG and MIGHTY TOWER, our REDEEMER, DELIVER, and our COMFORTER.  Is He all of that to YOU?

 

He can be, if you are WILLING TO TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  Then CONFESS your sins to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  BELIEVE with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and BE STRONG in your FAITH.  And spend your ETERNITY in HEAVEN with ALL its BLESSINGS, and ESCAPE HELL, with ALL its HORRORS.  Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
