‘I know whom I have believed.’ It is quite something to be able to say with confidence, ‘I know what I have believed’. But how much more it is for Paul, and for us, to be able to say, ‘I know whom I have believed’! Will we encourage and support the work of the gospel at home and abroad? ‘Everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted,’ .
