In the name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
“…these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.” (John 20:31)
“Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.” (John 20:30–31)
All of holy scripture points to the source of our salvation, Jesus Christ. Knowing the words does not save us. The Christian faith is not merely a set of facts, rules and objectives to memorize. The Christian faith is a person—Jesus Christ. This Christ brings us life, peace and salvation through his death and resurrection. Jesus is who saves us.
Prayer for Holy Cross Member
O Lord, in Holy Baptism you put your Name upon Ben. Bless him now with the forgiveness of sins and a firm trust in you. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
Prayer of the Week (from Sunday)
Almighty God, grant that we who have celebrated the Lord’s resurrection may by Your grace confess in our life and conversation that Jesus is Lord and God; through the same Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
