TODAY’S DEVOTIONAL MESSAGE

St. Jude Thaddeus – For You Are Made Free In His Name, Your Debt Has Been Paid In Full

As a patron saint of desperate cases and lost causes, I, Saint Jude Thaddeus, am writing to you today with a message of hope and encouragement. I know how difficult life can be. But I also know that we can draw from the everlasting bank of God to meet our needs.

Just like many of you, I too was burdened with the weight of my sins. I had lost all hope and was drowning in a sea of despair. However, Christ came to my rescue and paid the debt of my sins. He took the punishment that I deserved and made me a new creation.

In the words of Saint Paul, “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God—not the result of works, so that no one may boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9). Christ has paid the price for our sins, and there is nothing we can do to earn or deserve it. It is a gift that we must receive with humility and gratitude.

God’s resources are limitless, and we can draw from them with confidence and trust. We do not have to rely on our own strength or resources, but rather, we can rely on God’s grace and providence.

The Ultimate Payment For Our Debts

If you are familiar with taking a loan, you know that the longer we delay the payment, the more the interest accumulates, and the more debt we accrue. Our sins work in a similar fashion and create a downward spiral that we are unable to escape from. But thankfully, God had a plan for us that would break the cycle.

Christ’s suffering on the cross served as the ultimate payment for our sins. He paid the price for our sins, and there is nothing we can do to earn or deserve it. In the words of Saint Paul, “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).

We can draw from the everlasting bank of God because Christ has paid our debt. We do not have to worry about interest or repayment, but rather, we can trust in God’s love and provision.

Drawing From God’s Everlasting Bank

When we take loans from God, we are not borrowing money in the traditional sense. Instead, we are putting our trust in His providence and love. We are recognizing that God’s resources are limitless, and that He will always provide for His children.

God’s financial plans for your life are full of abundance and prosperity, and He wants you to experience the freedom and joy that comes with His blessings. So if you are struggling with financial struggles or feeling overwhelmed by debt, turn to God and ask Him to provide for you through His loans. Trust in His generosity and know that He is able to meet your every need.

Trust In His Providence – Ask & You Shall Receive

God’s providence are not just a one-size-fits-all covenant. He knows the many needs of each one of us and our innermost desires. And He knows exactly what will provide you with the spiritual growth and sustenance needed to ensure that you share in His kingdom when our work on earth is done.

Don’t be afraid to ask God for what you need. He is a loving and generous Father who wants to see you thrive. Trust in His ability to provide for you, and be open to His guidance as He leads you down the path that is best for you. Remember, God is your ultimate provider and He will not let you down. Trust in His provision and His love for you, and let go of your worries and fears.

Let Us Pray

"Dear Lord Jesus, I am humbled by the debt you paid for me on the cross. You suffered and died for my sins, and there is nothing I can do to repay you. All I can do is accept your gift of grace with gratitude and live my life in service to you. Help me to be mindful of your love for me and to share that love with others. May I never forget the price you paid for me, and may I always be grateful for your mercy and forgiveness."

Saint Jude Thaddeus, pray for us. Amen 🙏
