Father, we stand in awe of your abundant mercy and love towards mankind. We thank you that you looked beyond our faults and frailties and saw our needs; a need for redemption, a need for reconciliation back to you (2 Corinthians 5:18), a need for a Savior. We thank you for sending your Son (John 3:16), Jesus, to recover the lost and bring us back into relationship with you. Thank you that all of our sins have been washed away by the blood of the Lamb, who now reigns as the Lion of Judah! Thank you that in Christ's victory over sin and death (I Corinthians 15:55-57) you have given us access to experience a full and abundant life of satisfaction (John 10:10) and to triumph over every trial and hardship. Our hearts are full of wonder and gratitude. We thank you and give praise, glory, and honor. You are exalted in our minds and in our hearts. May our lives represent you and your word (2 Corinthians 3:1-3). May the love that you have showered us with be shed abroad in our hearts (Romans 5:5) that we may model your love towards others. May our thoughts, words (Colossians 4:6), and actions demonstrate your love. May we walk in love (Ephesians 5:2), kindness and compassion (Ephesians 4:32), and peace (Romans 12:18). This we pray in the name of our resurrected Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ, Amen.
***If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and Lord,
now is a great time! Simply call upon His name, "Jesus!" (Romans 10:13)***
