Dear Members and friends of St. Peter's Anglican Church,
The peace of the Lord be always with you.
THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH ( HABAKUKKUK 2:4).
In Habakkuk 2:4 we read: "...4 Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith."
What is faith ? Hebrews 11:1-4 says: 11:1 "Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. 2 This is what the ancients were commended for. 3 By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible. 4 By faith Abel brought God a better offering than Cain did. By faith he was commended as righteous, when God spoke well of his offerings. And by faith Abel still speaks, even though he is dead."
The people who believe in God have confidence in him and have assurance that God will do what He has promised no matter what happens. They live by putting their complete hope and trust in God.
Psalm 37:5 says : “Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass."
May God bless you with your families and friends and protect you by the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.
Fr. James Kibe Karanja.
