Therefore, [continue to] accept and welcome one another, just as Christ has accepted and welcomed us to the glory of [our great] God.
Romans 15:7 AMP
All of us come from a place of brokenness and being born into sin. None of us deserve salvation but we are simply saved by the grace and mercy of God. We were chosen before the creation of the world and the Lord has been working in our hearts and lives from the day we were born through the power and person of the Holy Spirit.
Every event and step in our lives is ordered by Almighty God. Nothing happens by accident. The Lord holds us in the palm of His hand and He will never leave us nor forsake. But we as brothers and sisters in the Lord must lift one another up. We must intercede daily. For we are engaged in a spiritual war that is unseen. Our enemy is not those who would persecute us and take our lives, but our enemy is the one who at one time desired to be worshiped instead of Almighty God. He believes he can stop God’s will and destroy all that the Lord is trying to accomplish. What he fails to understand and see is that he is simply a dog on a leash that is only able to do what he does because it falls into God’s sovereign will.
Let us unite our hearts together and stand as one in Jesus Christ. May Jesus simply be our focus and may we simply desire to use our lives to glorify His holy name. Our time is very short here and He shall return as a thief in the night. The trumpet shall sound soon as the gospel is going forth throughout the earth to every heart and every life. Here the voice of the Living God this day say come unto me all who are weary and heavy laden and I shall give you rest. He is speaking throughout the earth and the true sheep will know and hear His voice. We have nothing to fear. Jehovah goes before us and the battle belongs unto Him. No matter how many times they knock us down His grace is sufficient and His strength made perfect in our weakness.
