13 Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. 14 Do everything in love. – 1 Corinthians 16: 13-14 (NIV)
It’s interesting to consider that the disciples had been with Jesus for three years, yet they each wondered if they were going to be the one to betray him. They lived with him, learned from him, and ate with him, but they still had questions and doubts. We can learn from the disciples and recognize that God is open to our questions or confusion. We can also remember that just like the disciples, at any time we can be taken in by sin. We grow stronger in our faith through regular faith practices so that no matter how well we are doing in our walk with Jesus we can stand firm in our belief.
