Assaulting The Gates of Hell

“You could stand me up at the gates of hell
But I won’t back down” – Tom Petty

28Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.  – Matthew 10:28 (New International Version)

Mrs. Chester has been going through some tough times over the last few months. She is a Bible teacher and small group leader in our church, and regularly leads Bible studies. She has been called to this mission ever since she became a Christian over 20 years ago.

Now she is engaged in a great struggle, where the One mentioned above in Matthew has attacked her with ferocity. She fought back hard, but was wounded in the fight. Now she is recovering, but will need time to heal. For those of you who are Christian, please pray for her that she is healed completely so she can return to the fight. She will not give up, and she will not back down. Those who know her know this is true.

Peace to all of you – Chester

  1. Kathiek – thanks for the prayers. Glad you appreciated the Tom Petty. I grew up on rock and roll, and even though I am a Christian, or maybe because of it, I really appreciate some of the sentiment echoed for the Lord in rock and roll.
