Be on the Lookout
The paragraph below really struck me, considering the Charleston, SC church shooting which occurred last night:
But you are not left alone in your struggle. You have the support of a loving God and a caring group of other “gazelles” called “the Church”. Peter writes, “You know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.” Each one of us goes through ups and downs and the struggles of life, but we don’t have to do it alone. God brings people together in local congregations for support and protection against the attacks of the devil. In these churches God’s Word is taught and God’s people are equipped to resist and withstand the attacks of Satan.
