“God didn’t set us up for an angry rejection but for salvation by our Master, Jesus Christ. He died for us, a death that triggered life. Whether we’re awake with the living or asleep with the dead, we’re alive with him! So speak encouraging words to one another. Build up hope so you’ll all be together in this, no one left out, no one left behind. I know you’re already doing this; just keep on doing it.” (1 Thessalonians 5:9-11 MSG)
Fear is one of the most common enemy weapons, facing so many right now. Friend, the only way to battle it is with the truth.
As His beloved, His chosen one, you ARE alive with Him. Forever, in this world into eternity. His death brings you to life!!
So many out there don’t know this truth, and are losing their battle against fear. Which is why we need to remind one another who He says we are, what He says we are capable of – building up one another’s hope as we encourage one another! And no social distancing is going to limit your ability to communicate truth, friend. Mail a card, text or call a friend, FaceTime/video chat with one another, share a post on Facebook, comment on Instagram, retweet or tag one another on Twitter, join an online study together & email about it. Keep connecting!
Hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness, so let’s build up that hope by encouraging one another to press closer to Him during these difficult days.
