Courage

Help at the Right Time

Romans 5:6 "At just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly."

When a fireman rescues an aged man from the ledge of his old burning hotel; when a lifeguard pulls a drowning youth from the swimming pool and gives mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, restoring breath to the unconscious lad; or when a lumberjack pushes a man out of the way of a falling log, we join in thoughts of thanksgiving for the rescued ones. We hope someone will be around to help us in similar situations. 

Courage

1 Corinthians 16:13-14 "Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong. Do everything in love.

It takes a great deal of courage to live as a Christian in our modern world. There are so many powers at war against the life with Christ that all of us daily need His wisdom, His power, and His guidance. We need the quiet, steady courage that He alone can give through the assurance of the forgiveness of our sins.
