“However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?” (Luke 18: 8)
How will one be able to face the future without faith? As the writer of Hebrews says: “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” (Heb. 11: 1)
Our Christian commitment lasts for a lifetime. Despite the evil one’s efforts to undermine the Church of Christ, despite the pressures building up against the Christian faith, it remains your duty to exalt the Name of Christ. Through His strength you must hold on to everything that He has taught, so that when He returns, you will hear these words from His holy mouth: “… Well done, good and faithful servant! …Come and share in your Masters happiness!” (Matt. 25: 23)
PRAYER: Lord my God, strengthen me in my faith so that I will not fail in truly being your faithful witness, especially when the days of trial come.
