Jude20bBut you, beloved, building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life. And have mercy on those who doubt. Jude 20-22Prayer is the stepping stone into faith.  Praying in the Holy Spirit keeps us ‘centered’ on and in the love of God.  Being in the love of God gives us priceless treasures of love, joy and peace, the beginnings of all the fruit of the Spirit.  (Galatians 5:22-23)Inviting Jesus into your life, into your heart, into your soul, He comes into us and we are in Him.  It is a relationship like no other.  He walks with us and weeps with us and rejoices with us.  How tenderly he loves us.  Can we accept His Love and all that it means?He waits, expectantly to be gracious to us.  We live expectantly to experience His mercy and be blessed.  We wait for Him.  Blessed be the Lord!Therefore the Lord waits to be gracious to you, and therefore he exalts himself to show mercy to you.For the Lord is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for him. Isaiah 30:18
