He who will be faithful to the truth has need to pray: "Steel me to shame, reproach, disgrace, Arm me with all thine armor now;
Set like a flint my steady face,
Harden to adamant my brow."
Eternal life is not won without a struggle. The world is not overcome without a conflict. Souls are not rescued from the grasp of the destroyer without the most determined effort. Buckle on your armor; whet your swords; fight the good fight of faith.
Roberts, B.T. Pungent Truths (Kindle Locations 1788-1796). Unknown. Kindle Edition.
