Following in Jesus’ Footsteps
Today: With Courage
3rd Sunday After Pentecost
A walk with Jesus will be difficult. The devil the world and we ourselves will challenge us and threaten us and try to derail us. But we have a Savior who has conquered death and crushed Satan’s head. Who do we have to fear. May you find courage today as you walk in your Savior’s footsteps.

And we trust in God. Our Savior has promised that he will never leave us or forsake us. That is true when times are good and when times are difficult. That promise can give us encouragement for the present and hope for the future.

We are living in a unique time. Remember to look for opportunities to steer your conversations with neighbors and friends to the comfort and hope that we have in Christ!
