Because You are my Saviour I can come boldly with confidence into the presence of God. Because of You and Your mighty power within me I am able to accomplish infinitely more with my life than I think I can. By Your unlimited resources I am empowered with inner strength, so that I can understand how wide, how long, how high, and how deep Your love is for me, and all Your children. Therefore, I must lead a life worthy of the calling You gave me.
Because of Your love for me, I can be humble, gentle and patient with others; making allowance for their faults. I must make every effort to be united with Your children in the Spirit. I must do all that I can to build up Your body Lord, so that we won’t be tossed and blown about by every wind of new teaching. I must expose those who will try and trick Your children with lies so clever that they sound like the truth. I must speak the truth in love, so that Your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them.
I must not live my life as the world does, for they are hopelessly confused. Their minds are full of darkness, and have closed their minds and hardened their hearts against truth. They have no sense of shame, and live for lustful pleasure; eager to practice every kind of impurity. Because they have forsaken the truth the land has become a land of wickedness. They have filled the land with the blood of innocent children, making it a monument to their stupidity. When people stubbornly refuse to listen to the truth – there will be despair.
Lord, let all that I am praise You, and may I never forget the good things You have done for me and my family. Your word of truth has always renewed me day by day. Because Your word burns in my heart like a fire – I cannot hold it in! You have graciously ginen me the privilege of telling those who will listen about the endless treasures available to them in You.
