Be of Good Courage

“Be of good courage.  You have God on your side.  You have Christ to fight for you.  You have the Holy Spirit to sustain and comfort you.  You have more encouragements than discouragements.  You have the example of millions that have gone before you.  You have exceeding great and precious promises (2 Pe 1:4).  You have many fellow-travellers and fellow-soldiers, on the right hand and on the left.  You have a bright kingdom in view which will compensate for all trial and conflict here.  And then, the way is short.  The toil will soon be over.  The battle will not last forever.  Greater is He that is with you than all that can be against you.  Be strong int he Lord.  Be strong in His love and in His power.  Take to you the whole armor of God (Eph 6:10-11).
-Horatius Bonar (Follow the Lamb; p. 30)
