"Be Thou Faithful"
The Lord Jesus speaks to his people in the midst of great sorrow, tribulation, poverty, and persecution. Knowing the trials we must face in this world, he gives this one word of exhortation - "BE THOU FAITHFUL!" God requires nothing from us but this - "Be thou faithful!" In your daily conversation, in the place of your calling, in your home, with your property, with your gifts and talents, in the house of God, "Be thou faithful!" Faithfulness is a lifelong thing! "Be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life."
