O Lord, you have told us
that you will ask much of those to whom much is given;
may we, who enjoy so rich an inheritance of faith,
work together the more faithfully,
by our prayers and labors,
to share with those who do not know you
the gifts we so plentifully enjoy;
so may others enter into ours,
through Christ our Lord
Author unknown, fifth century
Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the salvation we share, I felt compelled to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to God’s holy people.
One thought on “so rich an inheritance of faith”
I love this image and the prayer. Its essence is one I’ve been praying for much lately.
