We have assurance of faith, salvation, and God’s strength as we spur each other on and remind each other regularly of Christ’s faithfulness.

The Faithful One may allow you to suffer, but their words and attacks will not be able to shake you.

Remain in the foundation of Christ, your mighty fortress.
