Every time you get knocked down or pushed around, or see things like Newtown or Boston, you grieve and doubt and yearn for it to make sense.
My friend Oswald Chambers has something to say about this:
Tenacity is the supreme effort of a man refusing to believe that his hero is going to be conquered.
The greatest fear a man has is that the things Jesus Christ stood for – love and justice and forgiveness and kindness among men – will not win out in the end.
Then comes the call to spiritual tenacity, not to hang on and do nothing, but to work deliberately on the certainty that God is not going to be worsted.
To show that Jesus Christ is not conquered, what one act will you do today to exalt love or justice or forgiveness or kindness among men? Just one. And maybe you don’t tell anyone.
That one act will be your contribution to demonstrating everything fits.
