Heralds of the Gospel
Those who preach the truth of God will meet the wily foe in many different forms. It is the duty of
the minister of Christ to stand faithful at his post,...Not without a struggle does Satan allow the kingdom of God to be built up in the earth.
Christ is a sure foundation. Upon this living stone, Jews and Gentiles alike may build. It is broad enough for all and strong enough to sustain the weight and burden of the whole world.
In the closing days of his ministry, when addressing a group of Gentile believers who had remained steadfast in their love of the gospel truth, the apostle wrote, Ye . . .are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone.
Ephesians 2:19, 20
