In the furnace, we’ll become pliable, strengthening our faith with the help of other followers of Christ. Authors, pastors, musicians, radio and print media, and other resources will contribute to our spiritual growth, and I hope that you will actively pursue each. It is one of my top priorities that “we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching” (Hebrews 10:24-25, NIV84). May we always stand united with one another, seeking knowlege and the glory of Christ, until the very end of the age.
