Faith Building Verse-Luke 22:31

August 22nd, 2022

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Faith-Building Verse is Luke 22:31.

Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift all of you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers.”

Satan has declared war on the human race, but God loves the human race and has provided a way for us to overcome through Jesus.

Notice the words of encouragement that Jesus has for Simon. I am praying for you that your faith may not fail. After you deny me three times, you will turn back to where you belong, and when you do, build up others who are in the faith.

Hebrews 7:25 says about Jesus, “He is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.”

This Faith-Building Verse inspires us to find encouragement in the intercession of Jesus on our behalf in the Year of Relationship.
