Preached on Sunday the 19th of February, 2023.
Faithfulness to the Lord is of the utmost priority and the Lord gives us plenty of reasons to be encouraged and warnings to heed. Following the Lord and being with him forever is so great an honour that even our safety is secondary to being in a right relationship with him. War, persecution and suffering are nothing but a grain of sand compared to the ocean of being in his love and grace. Have you counted the cost of following Christ? Is knowing him and being with him forever so grand a thing that even the greatest of persecutions seem like nothing in comparison? Trust in Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith and endure in him to the end and be saved.
