My heart is still burdened by the prevalence of unbelief in professing believers. I do not know what the main challenge is, the cause of the problem, but we could be called ‘those of little faith’. Like peter, fearing to come out to the waters, Matthew 14v31. Like the three who were called to the garden by the lord, “let us keep watch and pray” Matthew 26v36-46 yet they snored with no remorse. “Thou sleepest?”
Perhaps, we are bearers of that Laodicean trait, of being lukewarm; neither hot nor cold, undesirable enough and bound to be spewed out of the Lord’s mouth. I still do not know the cause of being Cowards in the Faith. The Apostle Paul in his last letter to Timothy, he says a lot about the end-times; that there will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boasters, proud, disobedient to parents, false accusers, despisers of those that are good, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God. But should such traits be seen within the church? Displayed by apostates maybe, but not by true believers. “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof, from such turn away.”
I humbly request that you pray dear reader, for every single gathering of believers, our dear small, close-knit local assemblies spread throughout Botswana, for those who break bread every Lord’s day, those looking into taking a step of baptism and those still under the curse of sin. Pray for revelation, revival and a purging of our souls, that each humble heart appears before the Throne of Grace in all glory, having not denied the power within them, that enables them to live godly lives.
