1 Cor 1:8-9 He will keep you strong to the end so that you will be free from all blame on the day when our Lord Jesus Christ returns. God will do this, for he is faithful to do what he says, and he has invited you into partnership with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
Jesus is not in the business of giving up. He is faithful until the very end to complete what he began. Just keep saying “yes” to Him, even when it is difficult and He will bring you to the completion of the plan He has for you. You are a partner with Him in the work He is doing, and He is faithful to complete His work.
The Becket Fund announced that a federal judge has granted almost 200 evangelical ministries a reprieve from the Obamacare abortion mandate while their cases are proceeding through the courts. Without the reprieve the ministries would have been forced to compromise their beliefs and provide abortion drugs to their staff or else face crippling fines from the government beginning in January 2014.
Luke 1:78 Because of God’s tender mercy, the morning light from heaven is about to break upon us, 79 to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, and to guide us to the path of peace.”
Zacharias began to prophesy concerning the great things God was doing in the birth of John the Baptist and Jesus. At the end of His prophecy he speaks of God’s great mercy. God’s plan was never to leave humanity in darkness, cut off from relationship with Him, but to shine a great light in the middle of that darkness and display His marvelous light. He wasn’t sending just a messenger, or another prophet, this time He was coming Himself in the person of Jesus to display the heart of God to a world that had been separated from Him. He would show us what humanity was created to look like and how we could walk in His peace. He would remove every obstacle to loving God and make a way where there was no way. Nothing is impossible for God.
