Be strong people of faith

1Co 16:13  Be careful. Hold firmly to your faith. Have courage and be strong.
1Co 16:14  Do everything in love. (ESV)

Our business is to be saving souls by the power of Jesus Christ and his finished work. We are not to be careless with our lives because God is watching, others depend on us and the world is watching us. The devil is looking to take us down, so be watchful, be careful, be aware of things around you and of the spiritual world. Hold firmly to the faith of Jesus Christ. Know the Bible and know what you believe. Beware of false teachers and beware of your own thoughts. Conform your minds to the word of truth. Be strong in faith, be courageous to speak and to write what is good and edifying. Do everything by the power of God's word and Spirit with his love being seen in you.
The flesh is weak and as we get older the body begins to wear out. We are not to be worn out in our faith. Revival begins in each heart wherein Jesus dwells.
2Ti 1:10  And now it has been shown to us in the coming of our Savior Christ Jesus. He destroyed death and showed us the way to have life. Yes, through the Good News Jesus showed us the way to have life that cannot be destroyed.
2Ti 1:11  I was chosen to tell people that message as an apostle and teacher.
2Ti 1:12  And I suffer now because of that work. But I am not ashamed. I know the one I have believed, and I am sure that he is able to protect what he has trusted me with until that Day.
2Ti 1:13  What you heard me teach is an example of what you should teach. Follow that model of right teaching with the faith and love we have in Christ Jesus.

Keep going, there are many who need to be saved from sin and death.Your life matters as a light to a sin darkened world.
