  My Witness

Vol. 8, No. 2, April, 2003

From the Editor
Sr. Jan Nattermann, S.N.C.

Sister Jan God's word endures forever! "A voice says, 'Cry!' And I said, 'What shall I cry?' All flesh is grass, and all its beauty is like the flower of the field. The grass withers, the flower fades, when the breath of the Lord blows upon it; surely the people is grass. The grass withers, the flower fades; but the word of our God will stand forever."

The power of God speaks to every generation through the Bible. Spend time with it. Be strengthened by it. God's word is our source of love, life, hope, prayer, mercy, power, encouragement, wisdom, faith and joy. Sister Brigid brings out in her article how the word of God gives light to every area of our life. She helps you to meet the Spirit of life, if you haven't done so already, through various passages of the Bible. In this issue I'd like to focus on God's Word as source of encouragement and life. The following references are a few which bring us the encouragement we need on our journey.

Romans 12:1-21
2 Corinthians 5:11-21
1 Thessalonians 2: 1-16
2 Timothy 1:1-18
1 Peter 3:8-22
Hebrews 10: 19-39
Hebrews 12:1-13

God's word as a source of encouragement and life is meant to give us strength to go on. "Therefore lift your drooping hands and strengthen your weak knees, and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be put out of joint but rather be healed" (Heb. 12: 12).
