Let us begin with the letter D. We need to DETERMINE that we will not remain discouraged. The two main key points here are DETERMINE and REMAIN… Discouragement in universal problem and it’s a fact that we all become discouraged. But what’s important is that once we become discouraged we need to DETERMINE that we won’t REMAIN discouraged. Now the difficulty of this, is that we must use mental discipline. The bible talks a lot about physical discipline and self-control. But, the bible also encourages us to have mental discipline.

When my wife and I got married close to thirteen years ago and my parents asked us why we wanted to get married, we replied, “because we love each other.” I will never forget the words that my dad told me that day. He said that we had a love, but that we really did not know what it meant to love each other, but that as the years went by, we would learn more and more of what it means to truly love one another.

Moral responsibility is not a popular idea these days. But, don’t be fooled by the world’s message! We are each responsible to God and others. Love is the foundation upon which rests all other responsibility. One such responsibility is our responsibility to teach others the gospel.

In Matthew 18:13ff, Jesus presents a very important question to these disciples. He says, “Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?” The disciples said that some people are saying that you are John the Baptizer; some people say that you are Elijah or Jeremiah or one of the prophets. Jesus then asks the disciples, “But whom say ye that I am.” Peter speaks up and says, “Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Jesus response to this question is revealing. He says that this confession that Peter made came from God and that based upon this confession Jesus will build His church. It is within this context of Peter’s confession and the promise to build His church that Jesus says, “And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 16:19).
