Words of Encouragement:
At our worship service at Trinity, we will hear the precious words of our Lord that says:
And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:6 ESV
Our Lord is faithful, and He works in each of us to will and to do His good pleasure. Our prayer is that the Holy Spirit will open our hearts and eyes to receive and see His work and not to reject it. He continues to offer His Love and Forgiveness through His Word and Spirit as His Word is proclaimed.
St. Paul continues then to remind us that we are to be giving thanks to our Lord for one another and to pray for one another that “…your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, 10 so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, 11 filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.” Philippians 1:9-11 ESV
Dear Lord, help us to receive Your love, with your knowledge and wisdom. Fill us with the fruit of Your righteousness so that others may be blessed this day with Your forgiveness, comfort, and love. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
