I’ve commanded you to be strong and brave. Don’t ever be afraid or discouraged! I am the LORD your God, and I will be there to help you wherever you go. (Joshua 1:9 CEV)
The Lord of Hosts has given us, the Church, His marching order which is, “Go unto all nations and make them my Disciples… and I will be with you until the end.” We are to preach the Gospel, which is the Power of God, for the salvation of those who believe. We are to baptize them in His name to receive the Spirit of God. After which, we have to integrate them to our fellowship to partake in our Feast of Agape. We continue to serve one another, teaching them how to serve God and be perfect in their faith. Finally, we have to send them to witness and speak for Christ. We should not be afraid to follow Him. He is mighty and able to help us. We have to have faith in Him. We may suffer and face many difficulties in doing His commands but they should not be the cause of our discouragement. Rather, hold on to our hope. Continue pressing forward. Soon, we shall reap the rewards of our efforts. Many souls shall be converted and returned to the Church for the glory of the Lord.
