In today's hectic and distressing world, we need to recapture the concept of daily rest. Demands and distractions agitate our spirits. Disasters trigger anxiety. Diseases generate pain. Despair creeps into our hearts. These influences displace our peace and pull us from resting in God and His Word. The reflections in A Month of Sundays: 31 Meditations on Resting in God pause our spinning thoughts and calm our fluctuating feelings. Real rest is impossible apart from belief in the triune God... Our souls find rest when we truly trust a sovereign God, who is also our loving Father, and walk in His ways every day of our lives.
It would be a good contest amongst Christians, one to labour to give no offence, and the other to labour to take none.
'Contending must be understood and exercised as an act of mercy toward those who doubt and those who have been deceived, regardless of whether they claim faith in Christ'.Not in a supercilious way, but in humility. Nevertheless it is active, not passive, determined to give glory to God. Pastors have a particular responsibility, but doing battle is unavoidable for every Christian.
