Hi, I'm Joni Eareckson Tada. I was reading scripture the other day when I came across First Corinthians chapter 16, where it says, "Be men of courage; be strong." Now, this is the only verse I know in Scripture where all Christians—all of them, men and women alike—are told to act like males; that is, be strong, adult males ready to face battle to protect what's worth fighting and dying for. Because the Christian life requires us to be strong, doesn’t it? To be of good courage. When the chips are down and the going gets rough, when the trials mount up and problems seem to overwhelm, all Christians are told to be men of good courage. So friend, what are the battles that you are facing today? Whatever they may be, may you be a man of good courage; may you be strong. And if you need extra prayer right now to stay strong and courageous, write to us at joniandfriends.org.
