Father, thank You for Your presence this morning. Thank You for making it possible for me to come before You. Only because of the sacrifice of Your Son, Jesus Christ, only because His blood covers my sins which are many can I be here with You. I can never begin to thank You enough for Your grace and mercy, so undeserved but so generously extended. Take this day of mine and use it, use me, as You will. Amen.
1 Thessalonians 4:9-12 (<<click here)
Lord, I am called to love other believers and for the most part that is an easily achievable goal. But how I live my life before those who don’t believe, that can be a bit more difficult. You are surely working with me in this area. I know Your Spirit often stops me mid-thought from speaking or doing something that would be a poor reflection of You. I am to live and respond as You would, as someone who is authentically genuine and considerate, strong and insightful. Enable me to be more discerning in my conversations. May all my interactions be saturated in love – in Your love channeling through this vessel of clay. May I be found worthy to be called by Your name. I give myself over to You today, Jesus.
