The prophets and the apostles are the foundation of all that we know of the Lord from the Scriptures, He Himself being the cornerstone (Ephesians 2:20).
They and all who labored with them were of sterling spirit. They were human beings of whom the world was not worthy (Hebrews 11:32-40).
It was proverbial for a prophet to be persecuted, and the apostles fared no better. Yet they never complained.
Those of us who labor in the name of Christ should embrace the spirit of those who have labored before us. If we do their work, in their spirit, we shall receive their persecutions, but, more importantly, their reward.
The purpose of this blog is to praise Jesus Christ in biblical terms.
