Only Christ Can Keep Us From Slacking

If you slack off on a day of distress,
    your strength is small indeed.
Yes, rescue those being dragged off to death —
    won’t you save those about to be killed?
If you say, “We knew nothing about it,”
    won’t he who weighs hearts discern it?
Yes, he who guards you will know it
    and repay each one as his deeds deserve.
Proverbs 24:10-12 CJB

Today is "a day of distress."  The only rescue for "those being dragged off to death" is faith in Jesus Christ.  He is the only one who can "save those about to be killed."

Those of us who know The Truth:  Do we not know this to be true?

"He who weighs hearts" can most certainly discern our understanding.

We can do nothing in our own strength.  We need the help of Christ.  Only The Holy Spirit can keep us from slacking on this day of distress.  Let us pray and receive His mighty help today.
