Tuesday of Lent 2

What does this mean?

Have you ever wondered how shall I share my faith with others? The explanation to the Second article of the creed gives us an excellent outline.

Answer -

Who -  I believe that Jesus Christ, true God, begotten of the Father from eternity, and also true man, born of the Virgin Mary, is my Lord,

What -  who has redeemed me, a lost and condemned creature, purchased and won [delivered] me from all sins, from death, and from the power of the devil, 

How - not with gold or silver, but with His holy, precious blood and with His innocent suffering and death,

Why -  in order that I may be [wholly] His own, and live under Him in His kingdom, and serve Him in everlasting righteousness, innocence, and blessedness, even as He is risen from the dead, lives and reigns to all eternity. 

This is most certainly true. When given the opportunity may we share the faith with others. 

Lord, help me to speak of You when necessary.
