Churchill

September 4, 2013

Winston Churchill, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom (1940-1945 and 1951-1955), Source Imperial War Museums (NYP 45063)

“But the Lord stood with me and strengthened me, so that the message might be preached fully through me…” (2 Tim. 4: 17).

Sometimes the challenges facing us as Christians seem insurmountable.  Little, however, is achieved without courage.

Winston Churchill knew this.  At a time when England was besieged by bombing raids and without allies, he, nonetheless, wrote:

“We shall not flag or fail.  We shall go on to the end.  We shall fight in France, we shall fight in the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air.   We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be.  We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets. We shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.”

Lord Jesus, we ask to be of service.

Stand by us and strengthen us, that Your message may be preached to all the world – despite our failures, despite our shortcomings, despite our fears.

Amen
