Stand Your Ground in the World

True believers are always represented as mixing in the world, doing their duty in it, and glorifying God by patience, meekness, purity, and courage in their several positions

— and not by cowardly desertion of them. Moreover, it is foolish to suppose that we can keep the world and the devil out of our hearts by going into holes and corners! True religion and unworldliness are best seen, not in timidly forsaking the post which God has allotted to us — but in manfully standing our ground, and showing the power of grace to overcome evil.

    Overcome evil. How we need to.

    May God give us the grace and strength to continue.

      Yes indeed. With a world that is getting increasingly dark, may God’s light shine all that more glorious
