It’s easy to lose heart when we’re surrounded by lies at every turn. But in each of our vocations and stations in life, we are called to persevere in the truth. Do not lose heart, parents, as you teach your children to properly distinguish between the truth of God and the lies of the world. Teach them to worship God in holiness, cherish God’s Word, adore Christ as Savior, and give their lives to Christ’s church, and when they are old, they will not depart from it (Prov. 22:6). Do not lose heart, pastor, as you seek to lead your flock through these turbulent waters to a safer shore. Saturate all your preaching and teaching with the truth of God so that your people will be on constant guard for their adversary the devil (1 Peter 5:8). Do not lose heart, young person, as you face opposition at your university or place of employment from a world hostile to lights set ablaze with gospel truth. Refuse to hide your light under a politically correct basket but set it where all the world may see (Matt. 5:15).
