Adhesive Faith

November 20, 2022


We strengthen our connection through consistent Christian service, by acting as the hands and heart of Jesus in the world. This may include feeding the hungry and housing the homeless, as well as teaching children or mentoring teenagers. It may include donating a portion of our income to a charity or giving some time to help in our community. As we do these things, Paul predicts that we will be “made strong with all the strength that comes from [God’s] glorious power, [and] prepared to endure everything with patience” (v. 11). Paul assures us that such engagement does not lead to burnout, because we are promised strength and patience in the face of every challenge. When we turn to Jesus, the invisible God made visible, we join ourselves to the force that gives life and binds the galaxy together.
