To my friends in the church militant,
here in this place where the struggle continues,
here where the darkness gathers,
where we feel the weight of evil,
where we pray for the light at all times...
In the depths of woe, remember our Father, and remember His business- what He is about in all this, what GOD HIMSELF directs his resources towards, is our salvation and redepmtion.
This is His business, and He will finish this thing.
Let us hold fast to Christ while we await His finished work in us and the world.
Soul Food, highly recommended...
Therefore my hope is in the Lord
And not in mine own merit;
It rests upon His faithful Word
To them of contrite spirit
That He is merciful and just;
This is my comfort and my trust.
His help I wait with patience.
(verse 3 LSB 607)
1 Peter 1:3-25
