There have been too many things clamoring for my attention this morning, Father. I should have been here sooner. Enable me to focus on what is important and to truly hear what you have to say to me. Amen.
Jude 1:17-21 (<<click green)
In my house, a wonderful gift exchange is “you scratch my back, and I’ll scratch yours.” This may occur in other circumstance but we both love having our backs scratched! 🙂
Another mutually beneficial act – and one of much greater importance is keeping ourselves safe in God’s love and Jude encourages us to do this by building each other up in our “most holy faith” by praying in the “power of the Holy Spirit.” as we “await the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ…” “You scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours.” We are a family and we should have each other’s back- and not just for scratching! Every opportunity we get we should encourage each other. Our world is way too full of negativity and put downs. Lift each other up!
We must pray for each other, regularly! Absolutely nothing can accomplish what prayer can, especially when we “pray in the power of the Holy Spirit” and not our own. Pray for each other!
Lord, You are coming and we should be doing everything we possibly can to help each other as we ready ourselves for Your imminent return. Help us, Lord, I pray. Amen.
