“Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong.” I Cor. 16:13 NKJV Every Christian needs courage to survive in times like these. You need courage to make spiritual progress. You need courage to make any meaningful headway in life. No one pursuing a worthwhile vision goes unnoticed, either by hell or by heaven. Every person pursuing a worthwhile goal becomes a marked man. Marked by heaven for honour and by hell for attack. Opposition is often proof that hell recognises you. Courage is that inner force that refuses to retire, retreat or quit in the face of opposition. It is a willingness to keep going forward when things are not easy. It takes courage to endure to the end. Shalom!
