Be Strong In The Lord

Being “strong”  is a trait that is desired by most people. It is really important in the Christian realm. We must, as Paul writes in Ephesians 6:10, “be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.”

The emphasis in the preceding verse centers not on man, but on Christ. Biblical strength is rooted in Christ. We can attain it only through “growing in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus.” (2 Peter 3:18) God wants His children to be equipped for service. Jesus said the He came that we might have an abundant and rich life.

The Christian life is a life of action. In Ephesians 6:11, Paul tells us to “put on the whole armor of God.” He says that Christians should be as prepared as the Roman soldier. In Ephesians 6:10-17, he takes the different items of a Roman soldier and made some spiritual application.

Christian, do you want to grow in Christ? It will require you to make a commitment to avail yourselves of all the resources the Lord has for us. Are you ready?

  1. Hi Larry, i wanted to write and thank you for having this web site. I am a christian living in Scotland who at the moment is experiencing a great depression and insecurity im my family life due to my wife having cancer. This is the second time in years. I watch her get on with life work and looking after every thing as she has always done.Whilst i seem to struggle at understanding why. Each day i pray but sometimes feel so alone. I look through the internet at positive christian verses for daily inspiration.
    This morning i googled , ” Be Strong In The Lord”, and your name appeared.
    I felt a strong compulsion to write and say thanks for being here. I asked for help and Larry Miles web site appeared with all the encouraging Christian verses I need to get me through daily.

    Thanks Larry and God Bless You.
    From one stranger to another stranger many miles and countries away.
