Reflections and Prayers


Jude 1:20-21  “But you, dear friends, must build each other up in your most holy faith, pray in the power of the Holy Spirit, and await the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will bring you eternal life.”


Devotional:  Use it or lose it!


If I come home with three bags of groceries and happen to drop one of those bags, Murphy’s Law guarantees that I always will drop the one with the eggs in it. Some of us treat our faith like a fragile egg. But faith isn’t fragile. Faith is given to us to use, to stretch, to flex and to develop. And the more we use our faith, the more faith we will have.


On the other hand, if we neglect our faith, it will atrophy. In other words, use it or lose it. Faith is like a muscle. The more we use it, the stronger it becomes.


In the scripture above, notice the emphasis is on faith doing things. Faith is praying, faith is staying the course and faith is keeping on practicing our own faith and supporting one another. Faith is active.


And we at Cross of Christ are so very blessed to have an active congregation! It is apparent we are ready, willing and able to grow our faith, using the gifts God gave us – such as the beautiful Stone Church building which is being used in new and special ways. We are using it, not losing it!!


Let Us Pray:  Dear Jesus, help us to become more and more like You. Let us grow in faith, hope and love. Help us to build each other up. Let us know the richness of feeling fulfilled when practicing and growing our faith through prayers, acts of kindness and bringing your spirit and love to others. We pray this in Thy Holy Name, AMEN.
