Matthew 4:27 “ Take courage!”
After Jesus told the disciples to take courage, Peter climbed out of the boat.
“Take courage” was the most common response I heard in Africa regarding anyone who was hurt or not quite right.
If I stubbed my toe, my assistant said, “Take courage.”
If I coughed, my helper said, “Take courage.”
If I was sick, my friend said, “Take courage.”
Jesus said, “Take courage!”
Take courage in the Lord for He is with you.
