- He sustains us through Protection – the Name of Jesus gives us protection
2. He sustains us by giving us Joy – Serve the Lord with gladness, it is the strength of the Church that gives us joy
3. He sustains us through Sanctification – The truth of His Word sanctifies us and the Christ-like character will manifest in our lives.
