Therefore lift your drooping hands and strengthen your weak knees, and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be put out of joint but rather be healed. Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord. (Hebrews 12:12-14 ESV)
Hymn ELH 361:1,5 Faith Is a Living Power from Heaven
Faith is a living power from heaven
That grasps the promise God has given,
A trust that cannot be overthrown,
Fixed heartily on Christ alone.
We thank Thee, then, O God of heaven,
That Thou to us this faith hast given
In Jesus Christ, Thy Son, who is
Our only fount and source of bliss.
Heavenly Father, strengthen my faith in Jesus as my Savior, knowing that my holiness comes only through faith in Him. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
