Remain faithful

Today’s Encouragement is John 8:31 NLT Jesus said to the people who believed in him, “You are truly my disciples if you remain faithful to my teachings.

Remain faithful-

Jesus was speaking to those who believed Him… so that includes us… and He’s saying that we are truly His disciples IF we remain faithful to His teachings. 

He said IF!  My friends one of the saddest experiences of my life was talking with a man who had been a pastor for 20+ years of his life, and somehow, someway, had become a devout, ardent atheist!  He was in his eighties and truly hard-hearted; he made everyone around him miserable, and claimed that the Gospel, the Good News of Jesus Christ, was just a made-up story. He even told me I needed to read some book which some man wrote, which would ‘make it all clear to me.’  I didn’t.

His was the darkest, blackest, emptiest spirit I’ve ever encountered in my life. 

He was the embodiment of the example of one who did not remain…

On the other hand, I’ve been blessed to know several folks who lived faithfully to the end of their lives… remaining full of faith in Jesus… and these were beautiful, Hope-filled, Loving souls, we casually call them saints… and truly they are.

Father God may we remain full of faith in our savior Jesus.  Holding to the Truth which He taught, the Truth that He was, and that He IS and forever will be!

Find us Faithful
