But whatever happens to me, you must live in a manner worthy of the Good News about Christ as citizens of heaven. Then, whether I come and see you again or only hear about you, I will know that you are standing side by side, fighting together for the Good News. Don’t be intimidated by your enemies. This will be a sign to them that they are going to be destroyed but that you are going to be saved, even by God himself. (Phil 1:27-28 NLT)
Prayer: LORD, a life commitment to You and to what You have called me requires me to stand strong when others do not understand. I may even be rejected. Enable me to live in a manner worthy of Your calling. As I affirm my commitment to You, help me not to be intimidated by people but be faithful in my commitment and relationship with You first, above all else. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
