Do you have a loved one or a friend for whom you have been praying, for God’s revelation of Christ in their heart, and for their subsequent surrender to His Lordship, receiving the joy of His salvation?
Has it been a long road for both you and them? Don’t be discouraged, my friend, and never give-up!
“But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”
~ 2 Peter 3:8-9
Christ suffered crucifixion and death on behalf of their sins, just as He did for ours, and He has certainly NOT forgotten them. And today, as the living Christ, He passionately desires to receive them into His kingdom.
Keep praying for your loved ones and friends. Our sincere, faith-filled, passionate prayers play a strategic role in their salvation, a role that we do not fully understand.
A good soldier does not need to fully understand every single dynamic of the battlefield, they just need to know what their orders are and how to use the weapons at their disposal to achieve their mission.
“Semper Fi,” my fellow soldiers!
(“Semper Fi” or “Semper Fidelis” is Latin for “always faithful.” It is the motto of the U.S. Marine Corps.)
