Today’s scripture: Philippians 4:1
On Friday, we were reminded that those of us who follow Christ are far from
home. But one day our Savior will transform and conform us. One day we will be
with Him for eternity.
So while we’re here on this rapidly-declining earth, we can “stand fast.” We
can live in hope. We can trust our heavenly Father to work His perfect plan in
and through us. We can be assured of His faithfulness. We can share His truth with others. We can do what He calls us to do.
And although Paul wrote these words two millennia ago to the believers in
Philippi, we can know—beyond doubt—we are beloved of God. We are longed-for. We
are His joy and crown.
Stand fast, my friends. Stand fast.
