Often we receive letters of rebuke for every conceivable perceived issue, and always from those who call themselves believers. One of today’s letters was from a husband who admitted that his wife was wonderfully changed after reading my book Created to Be His Help Meet, BUT when he read it, he was aghast how little Scripture (300 plus verses??) I used and NO GREEK!!! It took him six pages of rebuke to come to the point of telling me I was a heretic. Yes, I think I know how Moses felt.
Sometimes I want to lay down my pen and just hold my grandbabies. I want my tired old husband to just sit in his easy chair instead of daily pouring out his life until he can barely walk through the door, but then I remember one word—STAND. God says it like this: “Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth . . . “ (Eph 6: 13–14)
So today I commit to continue writing encouragement to young families to flee from the destructiveness of being a slave to sin. We will teach young folks how to have a good marriage, how to love their children and train them to honor God. Mike will keep teaching the Bible verse by verse, and we will make as much teaching as possible free on the Web. We will continue to help others gird their loins with truth so that they may STAND in the evil day . . . because it is now upon us.
