Some indeed preach Christ from envy and rivalry, but others from good will. The latter do it out of love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel. The former proclaim Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely but thinking to afflict me in my imprisonment.
Three Things About God
Bethlehem’s Fighter Verse to memorize this week is this:
For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.—Psalm 91:3–4
Notice what God does:
1. He delivers.
2. He covers, gives refuge.
3. He remains faithful.
When it seems God has not delivered, he is being faithful to deliver at the right time and in the right way.
