DRIFTING AWAY: Avoid an Evil, Unbelieving Heart, in Falling Away from the Living God!

The truths of God’s Word will not benefit us unless we give heed to them. It will not save us that the Lord Jesus has come and spoken to people unless we are disposed to listen. It will not benefit us that the sun shines unless we open our eyes. Books will not help us unless we read them; medicine, unless we take it; nor will the fruits of the earth sustain our lives, however rich and abundant they may be, if we disregard and neglect them. So with the truths of God’s Word. There is truth enough to save the world – but the world ignores and despises it. Many Christians barely study it.

1 CORINTHIANS 16:13: Paul Exhorted Men to ‘Act Like Men, Be Strong.’ Is This a Case of Toxic Masculinity?

1 Corinthians 16:13 Updated American Standard Version (UASV)
13 Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.

“God calls Christians to a way of life that incites opposition from the world. He calls his people to enter a spiritual war in which opponents seek believers’ destruction and fight against believers’ goals. In this hostile world, it is essential that followers of Christ be courageous and strong.” – Richard L. Pratt Jr.
