So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter (2 Thess. 2:15). Guard what has been entrusted to you. Avoid the godless chatter and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge, for by professing it some have missed the mark as regards faith (1 Tim. 6:21-22).

Do you see what God sees? Witnessing the Cross; witnessing to the Cross.

If you want to see the Cross made manifest,
Witness the tortured limbs and outstretched hands of those murdered by terrorists representing the Islamic State.
Witness the tiny hands, lungs, liver and heart of an aborted child being grasped by an abortionist's forceps.
Witness the destruction of inalienable rights—the right to freedom of conscience and religion.
Witness the poorest of the poor, the material and spiritually destitute, desperate and craving succour.
Witness the destruction of marriage and the family.
Now do you see Christ crucified? Now do you hear God's voice? How will you respond? Whatever you decide to do, start and end with prayer.
