Sunday: 8:00 & 10:30am
Greetings St. Paul’s friends and family,
Today Jesus promises there will be division between people on earth. Even more, he promises he will be the cause of it. His teachings will reveal where people stand in their beliefs, and whether they are with him or not.
The practice of Christianity is not easy. It involves endurance, patience, and loss. Even more it involves our heavenly Father who disciplines us along the way. This is what our second lesson calls, “The race marked out for us!” Many stop running the race. They walk away, give up, or are enticed by worldly empty promises.
But the faithful Christian is encouraged by a great cloud of witnesses and keeps their eyes on Jesus Christ. The finish line we will cross in faith will usher in an eternal crown. May we all cling to the Savior Jesus and run the race!
