These days, watching the news or scrolling through social media often leaves me feeling discouraged and drained. The world is chaotic, full of noise. High tensions. Pointing fingers.
But Christians are called to stand firm in the faith, to be rooted in Christ, and to be examples of how to live boldly, and to be examples of how to live righteously in such confusing times.
I want to thank Bruce Nevin Haines for submitting the song “To Raise the Standard,” which reminds us of the importance of laying everything down at the cross for the sake of true peace. Please enjoy this timely and poignant song. I hope you are encouraged today.
