Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men. See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men.
Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. Quench not the Spirit. Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil.
And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.”
1 Thessalonians 5:14-24 (KJV)
Since the time of the resurrection of Jesus and until today Christians have not been without troubles. Just like the rest of the world we have sickness, disease, financial setbacks, and ruin. “In the world you will have tribulation” Jesus said. He also said, “…Be of good cheer; for I have overcome the world.” I am so thankful for those words.
Many times I have asked myself the question, “What am I supposed to do in such a time as this?”. The answer is given in the above verses. In short we are to keep on doing what we are supposed to do; live by faith; trusting the outcome to our beloved Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
