Keep honoring God in your conduct and words; though many will turn against you and your message, some may turn to Christ.
Commentary from The One Year NIV Devotional NT, October 15. Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. 2003.
We must not live with only our own survival in mind.
To live this life effectively, we must keep our eyes on Jesus. We stumble when we look away from Him and at ourselves or the circumstances surrounding us. We are running Christ’s race, not our own, and we must always keep Him in sight.
