Jesus is Lord in all things. A person may choose to not believe but that does not make our Lord go away. Jesus is here to save the lost, love unconditionally and do for us what we cannot do for ourselves if we only trust.
Life consists of many blessings, rewards and encouragements. Life also consists of hardships, disappointments and challenges above and beyond what any human can handle. The most important thing is how we represent God in all things. God finds us worthy to be called but are we worthy of the calling? Our gauge is how we display our love for God in the best or worst circumstances.
I beg you—I, a prisoner here in jail for serving the Lord—to live and act in a way worthy of those who have been chosen for such wonderful blessings as these. Be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love. Try always to be led along together by the Holy Spirit and so be at peace with one another.
