Grace, Faith, and New Life
God provides for the faithful who are at their wit's end (1 Kings 19:1-15a). His covenant love rescues those who have proven to be obstinate and slow to honor his ways (Isaiah 65:1-9). Jesus Christ makes us children of God through faith. Those who are baptized into Christ are heirs of God's covenant and members of his community (Galatians 3:23-29). Praise God! Jesus has the power to cast out evil and has come to rescue those who are far from God (Luke 8:26-39).

"I beseech you to again observe the incomparable majesty of Christ who transcends all. With irresistible might and unequaled authority, he crushes Satan by simply willing that it should be." -Cyril of Alexandria (Commentary on Luke, Homily 44)
Collect for the Second Sunday after Pentecost
O Lord, make us have perpetual love and reverence for your holy Name, for you never fail to help and govern those whom you have set upon the sure foundation of your loving-kindness; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
