“When he arrived and saw the grace of God, he rejoiced and encouraged them all to remain faithful to the Lord in firmness of heart…” (Acts 11:23).
Thank God, “remaining faithful” is not only our problem – even the first Christians had the same trouble. It is quite easy for us to enjoy “the grace of God,” but later, slowly everything goes back to “normality.” It is so natural for our human condition. What we need is to receive from time to time some encouragement “to remain faithful to the Lord in firmness of heart”.
“Go and teach all nations, says the Lord; I am with you always, until the end of the world.” (Alleluia versus)
