Tonight I found out someone I used to be very close with is an atheist now.
We think we are solid. We think we are safe. But our enemy walks around seeking whom he may devour.
We have to be on our guard. We have to be in fellowship with other believers. We have to be in fellowship with God. We have to repent and not let sin develop into greater sins.
We can't take our walk for granted. We must throw ourselves on the One who said no one can snatch us from His hand and Who is able to keep us from stumbling.
What frail creatures we are if we must make it our goal to stay in the faith all our days!
I have said it before, but I want to reaffirm. My life goal is, when I'm in my 80s, whether married or single, to stand in the congregation of the righteous and bless the Lord and worship Him for Who He's been all my life.
It is not about us. It is about acknowledging Who He is.
