A Thought for Today

WE perceiving how Satan in his members, the Antichrists of our time, cruelly do rage, seeking to overthrow and destroy the Gospel of Christ, and his Congregation, ought, according to our bounden duty, to strive in our Master’s Cause, even unto the death, being certain of the Victory in him: The which our duty being well considered, We do promise before the Majesty of God, and his Congregation, That we (by his grace) shall with all diligence continually apply our whole power, substance, and our very lives, to maintain, set forward, and establish the most blessed Word of God, and his Congregation: And shall labour according to our power, to have faithful Ministers, truly and purely to minister Christ’s Gospel and Sacraments to his people. We shall maintain them, nourish them, and defend them; the whole Congregation of Christ, and every Member thereof according to our whole powers, and waging of our lives, against Satan and all wicked power that doth intend Tyranny or trouble against the foresaid Congregation. Unto the which holy Word, and Congregation, we do join us; and so do forsake and renounce the Congregation of Satan, with all the superstitious abomination and idolatry thereof. And moreover, [we] shall declare ourselves manifestly enemies thereto, By this our faithful Promise before God, testified to this Congregation by our Subscription at these Presents. Ist Covenant of Scotland 1557

I read this earlier today, and thought how necessary the same sentiments are needed today.

 You might not agree with creeds, confessions, or covenants which are an interpretation of what the Word of God teaches us to do, but they do focus our minds and cause us to evaluate what we believe and what should be the tenor and drive of our lives.

Satan is that great usurper and is just as active today, trying to minimise and suppress God’s Word, seeking to destroy individual Christian lives and undermine the life and witness of the Church of Jesus Christ. So we need, and must have, the same dedication and single-mindedness to earnestly contend for the faith once delivered to the Saints. Without a unity of purpose in this respect we shall be become weaker and more fragmented, less able to have a real impact on the life of the nations in which we live and more importantly, among those with whom we have social interaction day by day.

I would not ask anyone to sign such a document today BUT would earnestly implore all Christians to put its sentiments into action.

What is YOUR reaction to this . Please let me know..
