How deep are we in our faith and relationship with Jesus? Will we flee and cower in fear when trouble assails us? Are we easily discouraged?

For those of us strengthened by our faith in Christ. Who rejoice in His love and peace. Do we share our hope and faith to those who have none? Who do not yet know Him? Who are driven to despair?

Jesus assures us today that we are never alone in our journey to live our lives according to His Word. Our God is with us always. With this in mind how can we not be brave? What is there for us to fear?

Be with us Lord today and everyday of our lives till we are with you for all eternity. Amen

GOSPEL John 16:29–33

The disciples said to Jesus,“Now you are talking plainly, and not in any figure of speech. Now we realize that you know everything and that you do not need to have anyone question you. Because of this we believe that you came from God.” Jesus answered them, “Do you believe now? Behold, the hour is coming and has arrived when each of you will be scattered to his own home and you will leave me alone. But I am not alone, because the Father is with me. I have told you this so that you might have peace in me. In the world you will have trouble, but take courage, I have conquered the world.”
