Friday's Determination Dose - March 16th 2012 


Determination     


"It is God himself, in his mercy, who has given us this wonderful 
work [of telling his good news to others], and so we never give up."
- 2 Corinthians 4:1 (TLB).


When the United Kingdom's back was against the wall during 
World War II, Winston Churchill declared: "We shall go to the end, 
we shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, 
we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in 
the air, we shall defend our Island whatever the cost may be. We
shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and 
in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender, 
and even if, which I do not for a moment believe, this Island or a 
large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire 
 beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, 
would carry on the struggle, until, in God's good time, the 
New World, with all its power and might steps forth to the rescue 
and the liberation of the old."


May we who call ourselves Christian have the same 
determination when coming against our arch enemy who himself, 
with his horde of evil spirits, is totally committed to destroying 
everything that is Christian and doing everything in his
power to stop people coming to Jesus and receiving God's gift 
of sins forgiven and eternal life.


In the words of the classic hymn:


Onward Christian soldiers
Marching as to war
With the cross of Jesus
Going on before.


Prayer: "Almighty God, please help me to be a true soldier of the 
cross with a determination to never give up in doing my part to 
help 'the cause of Christ,' to make a stand for right, and to help 
spread the gospel around the world. Thank you for hearing and 
 answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, 
 Amen."


Have a Blessed Friday and God Bless you.
