Cringe. Draw back in fear. Hesitation. I keep coming back to one of the most used phrases in The Bible, fear not. My friends, there is nothing in this world that our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, does not have under His control. And that needs to be us!!
My father gave the message this morning at our church. I love listening to him speak on his love of Jesus and understanding of The Bible. This morning was Romans 12:1-2.
12 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
Does that sound like we are meant to cringe? No! We are to put on the full armor of God and move forward in faith. What battles are you facing today? I want to encourage you to not cringe. Stand tall. Stand firm and run the race that is set before you.
