Hallelujah, praise the living God for another day to pray for you all and be used by Him. Today I offer these lines from Christopher J.H. Wright.
“Mission lies at the very heart of all God’s historical action in the Bible. Mission to His fallen, suffering, sinful human creation, and indeed ultimately to His whole creation as well. That is why He called Abraham, sent Jesus, and commissioned His apostles. For there is one servant people, one Servant King, one servant mission.”
Romans 5:17 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
17 For if by the transgression of the one, death reigned through the one, much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.
Abba, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises You. Thank You for this new day and for the renewing of minds through the reading and hearing of Your word. Your servant is very thankful for the wonderful gifts of grace and righteousness. Please continue to be our help and strength as we press forward into troubling time. Help us to maintain the focus on the eternal things and not those that are temporary and distracting our gaze away from You. In Jesus’ name, amen.
