Responding to God’s Word (13): Faith is the victory that overcomes the world.

Wherever you hear the sound of the trumpet, join us there. Our God will fight for us! (Nehemiah 4:20).

Where the gospel of Jesus Christ is being faithfully preached and the Word of God is being faithfully taught, that’s where we are to be. That’s where the blessing is to be found, where Christ is being lifted up and the Word of God is being opened up to the people. What words of encouragement we hear when Christ is preached to us! “Our God will fight for us!”: this is the encouraging message that comes to us from the Word of God. The Lord gives his victory to us. May he give to us the faith which claims, by faith, the victory that he gives to us.
