I Corinthians 11:23
23 For I received from the Lord what I also handed on to you…
For the last couple of months, John, Sarah, and I have been able to share with you and with one another the writings of other Christians that have deepened our faith. And we have run out of time before we have run out of inspirational thoughts. There are wonderful words waiting to be encountered in the writings of Brother Lawrence, Thomas Kelly, Augustine, Thomas Merton, Soren Kierkegaard, Catherine Marshall, A. W. Tozer, Evelyn Underhill and scores of other famous people of faith. And then there are the words of wisdom shared in those everyday conversations with everyday saints.
Let’s pray along with one another as we share faith and turn our sights toward the Manger in Bethlehem.
Thank You, God, for all those people whose faith and life has deepened my life in faith. Give me words to speak that might nurture faith in someone I encounter in the days to come. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
