“I urge Euodia and I urge Syntyche to live in harmony in the Lord. Indeed, true companion, I ask you also to help these women who have shared my struggle in the cause of the gospel, together with Clement also and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the book of life” (Philippians 4:2-3).
Living in this world is rough. We are not to turn on one another, but seek to look forward and remember the admonition of the Lord to live in peace. Seek then the righteousness of the Lord and know that in Him there is hope and an eternal future. He will accomplish through all things that which He has purposed. The Lord has written the names of those who are His in His Book of Life.
Lord, through the fog of this world, Your Word speaks truth with clarity. Help me to see the truth You have spoken. Guide me in all goodness so that I may now and always live according to Your Word. Through You and in You is all hope. You have given us the community, the fellowship which surrounds all witnesses. Lead me ever more deeply into all of the gifts You have given me.
Lord Jesus, in You alone is all hope. Help me now and forever to see that in You is the goodness and mercy I need. Sometimes You use Your servants to be Your goodness and mercy. Help me rejoice in the communion of saints and know that You are the One who is knitting all things together according to the Father’s will. Lead me this day so that I may look to You with all thankfulness. Amen.
