Worthy of our Trust
God knows we are frail. In this passage, we see real people in real danger, responding to their situations with a mixture of fear and faith. We need not be discouraged though, when we face all kinds of trials and challenges. When we live to please God, we can live dailing in his presence, pursuing eternal treasure, trusting him through all circumstances.
We see too that God is unstoppable. The gospel will always advance. And in this advance, God reveals his glory and his plans are worked out. God is so far beyond and above us; can does not need us. And yet he chooses us, to be part of his plans and to receive a glorious eternal heritage – as have those early Christians who testified boldly about the good news of Jesus Christ.
