"Be of Good Cheer"
"Be of Good Cheer"
"In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer;
I have overcome the world"
My LORD's words are true as to the tribulation.
I have my share of it beyond all doubt.
The flail is not hung up out of the way, nor can I hope that it will be laid aside so long as I lie upon the threshing floor,
How can I look to be at home in the enemy's country,
joyful while in exile, or comfortable in a wilderness?
This is not my rest.
This is the place of the furnace, and the forge, and the hammer.
My experience tallies with my LORD's words.
I note how He bids me "be of good cheer."
Alas! I am far too apt to be downcast.
My spirit soon sinks when I am sorely tried.
But I must not give way to this feeling.
When my LORD bids me cheer up I must not dare to be cast down.
What is the argument which He uses to encourage me?
Why, it is His own victory.
He says, "I have overcome the world."
His battle was much more severe than mine.
I have not yet resisted unto blood.
Why do I despair of overcoming?
See, my soul, the enemy has been once overcome.
I fight with a beaten foe.
O world, Jesus has already vanquished thee;
and in me, by His grace,
He will overcome thee again.
Therefore am I of good cheer and sing unto my conquering LORD.
If you are not a believer in Jesus Christ,
you can be accepted in to his kingdom.
I invite you to let him to make of you, what He always wanted.
Marvelous God Almighty, I come to you in the precious name of Jesus, who died for me to make me free of sin, I want Jesus to enter in to my heart and make me free, I confess that He is the son of God. I ask to change my heart and to give me wisdom to understand your Holy Word full of promises of eternal value, not only to live on this earth, but to be expectant of my life in heaven. In the precious name of Jesus I ask. Amen..

“The true minister of Christ knows that the true value of a sermon must lie, not in its fashion and manner, but in the truth which it contains.
