Opportunities and adversaries usually go together.

Warren Wiersbe

Expect Opposition

The apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 16:9, “For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries.”  “A great door and effectual” means “a door of opportunity is opened to do effective work.”  Warren Wiersbe said, “Opportunities and adversaries usually go together.”  Any Christ honoring ministry that glorifies God is going to face opposition.  We are excited about all the doors of opportunity that God is opening for GMBC to do effective work that will bring glory to Him.  We must however, like Paul, expect the opposition while keeping our focus on the opportunities to see folks brought to Christ, and believers encouraged and edified in the faith.
