Pastoral Epistle – October 20, 2021
Greetings in Jesus!
“Be strong and do not let your hands be weak, for your work shall be rewarded”! II Chronicles 15: 7
Here is our Lord encouraging His people to be strong. We are also called to refuse to allow our hands to be weak. The Lord has His rewards for His people who are determined to be strong in the face of adversity. So let us be strong in our Lord.
