Pastor Job Huang, pastor of Wuhan Roots&Fruits Christian Church exhorts:
Churches of Wuhan, be strong and courageous!
Who better to say this than a person in the middle of the onslaught.
It is interesting that these are the same words God tells Joshua before he was to lead his people into the promised land. What might this mean for us in this time?
May we have ears to hear, may we pray for and with the Chinese Church, and may we recognize eternal truths in this momentary affliction.
“Because we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead will also raise us with Jesus and present us with you to himself. All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God.
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
