Acts 22:30- 23:6-11 & John 17:20-26
Christ Jesus, help me have the courage to testify to You…
Living heart-fully in Christ is a challenge in a world that worships success, idolizes fleshly lusts and is fascinated with all manner of demons and devils. But being connected to Christ Jesus through praying scripture, receiving the sacraments of the church and opening up to God’s holiness –and whole –y-ness – leads to courage or ‘heart-fullness’. When I take time to choose to follow Christ, I testify to his saving Grace, and preach his Word at all times, using words only when necessary. Christ Jesus, help me have the courage to testify to You.
I keep the Lord always before me; therefore my heart is glad, and my soul rejoices; my body also rests secure. (Psalm 16:8-9)
