04 Dec The Land of Judah Rejoices (Is 26:1-2) by Matthew Laugeman
“On that day they will sing this song in the land of Judah: ‘A strong city have we; he sets up walls and ramparts to protect us. Open up the gates to let in a nation that is just, one that keeps faith.’” ~ Is 26:1-2 (full readings)
Matthew’s Reflections: In the times we are living in, it can be discouraging to stand up for what is right, for truth. Watching people, whether out of ignorance or total disdain for what is Holy, can have a lecherous effect. Brothers and sisters in Christ, stand firm for what you know is Truth! He will-”Open the gates to let a nation in that is just, one that keeps faith.” Here in the state of Missouri, we are down to just one abortion clinic! The past election shows a promising turn to the right! We are the hands and feet that serve, for the Holy Spirit dwells within us, and we can do ALL things thru Him who strengthens us!
