Christ has made the way to God. He has brought us with him into God’s presence by his death on our behalf. Now Christ stands with us before God and over us as the people of God. We have come to Christ by faith as the Spirit of God has drawn us to him. There is great reward and the promise of life that awaits us. So, let us endure! Let us remain in Christ, with Christ’s people, and in the things of Christ which will matter in eternity. The Christian and the congregation that endures will be of great benefit to people in times of turmoil. When God turns their hearts to Christ, we will be standing with Christ to welcome them as we ourselves have been welcomed by him.
