Encouragement for those that are new in the faith or the established Christian who has perhaps left or been driven out by a false church…whatever the case, God knows your plight!
“Christ’s sheep love to go in flocks. “They that feared the Lord spoke often one to another.” We take sweet counsel together and walk to the House of God in company. Yet somewhere or other on the road, every Christian will find narrow paths and close places where pilgrims must march in single file.
Be bold, my dear Brothers and Sisters, and do not flinch! Your Savior walked alone and you must do so too.
Perhaps this lone obedience is to be a test of your faith. Persevere! Yield not a particle of the Truth of God! …..Care not how either the Church or the world reviles you! Serve your Master and He will not desert you!
With all due deference to others, pay yet greater deference to the Lord who bought you with His blood! Where He leads, follow without delay—the Father will be with you in so doing….”
