Greetings in Christ Jesus to all the brethren,
The month of July is already upon us, and summer is heating up and vacationing has begun. As I was remembering our own vacations of the past, I was reminded how important it is to remain steadfast in our Lord. It can be all to easy to let our guard down since vacation is a time to have fun and enjoy the places we visit. But remember, we can never take a vacation from our Lord. Our light must continue to shine before men (Matthew 5:16) and our love must continue toward others that people would know that we are children of God, disciples of Jesus Christ (John 13:35). So, I encourage you to redeem the time, make the most of your time for our Lord because the days are evil and people need to hear the gospel and be saved (Ephesians 5:16, 2 Peter 3:9). Enjoy your summer and vacation(s), and remember what Jesus said in the parable of the Minas, “Do business till I come” (Luke 19:13b).
Blessings in our Lord Jesus Christ,
