Christians should seriously and strenuously work to be lights in the world by nurturing contentment and unity through the joy of priestly sacrificial service.
Hold on to the truth of the Gospel and continue laboring, knowing your work is not in vain.
True Christians are given eyes to see and seize the all-surpassing joy and worth of having Jesus as their King and the eternal benefits of entrance into His Kingdom.
God has sovereignly planned all of the trouble that will come to His people, and His control over them will include bringing those responsible for the trouble to an end.
Those who faithfully seek to understand God's plan in times of trouble are strengthened by His word.
The repentant cry from God's people is met with His loving response and set plan for their restoration.
