Humbly Pray

2 Timothy 1:7

As we pray for peace and healing for our nation, let us humbly pray for unity in the Church. Please pray with us that all believers would be instruments of God’s saving, redemptive, and transforming love, demonstrated in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Pray also that the love of Christ, which is patient and kind, would jettison fear from our hearts and move us in His peace and power toward our neighbors.

How Do You Abide in Christ?

How Do You Abide in Christ?

As Jesus taught in John 15, He is the vine, and we as followers are the branches. If a branch is disconnected from the vine, it can’t bear fruit—it has lost its purpose. This week, take some time to read John 15 and ask the Lord how He would have you abide in Christ in 2021. Find ways to stay connected with God and other followers through worship, service, and community at stonebriar.org
