A Table in the Presence of Enemies

"The Kingdom is to be in the midst of your enemies. And he who will not suffer this does not want to be of the Kingdom of Christ; he wants to be among friends, to sit among roses and lilies, not with the bad people but the devout people. O you blasphemers and betrayers of Christ! If Christ had done what you are doing, who would have ever been spared?"

-- Martin Luther

Let us not grow weary of doing good. I am surrounded by friends, neighbors, relatives who do not believe in Jesus. I pray and give them the Gospel but it seems to fall on deaf ears. I pray that God will open their ears and eyes before it is too late. I look forward to the day when every knee will bow. Come quickly Lord Jesus!
