For the FATHER Himself loves you, because you have loved me and have believed that I came from the FATHER.
The FATHER’S love has been given to us in its fullest expression when He gave us His only begotten Son, JESUS CHRIST! As His redeemed children, we are called to have faith in CHRIST JESUS and in His great sacrifice on the cross. Faith coupled with trust in Him benefits us in ways beyond deserving. We reap the love of GOD without measure which grants us the keys to His Kingdom. We’re exceedingly blessed and honored by our heavenly FATHER’S love!!
Dear FATHER, we thank You that with our poor, faulty, sinful, and death-ridden lives we may find shelter in Your love. We thank You have called us Your children. We thank You that whatever we are, however depressed we are about ourselves and the inadequacy of our own nature, we are still Your children. Give us Your SPIRIT, we pray. Give us Your HOLY SPIRIT, penetrating our whole nature, our flesh and blood, keeping us firm in faith under all temptation and distress. Give us your SPIRIT to fill us with hope as we look to the future, to fill us with certainty in our LORD JESUS CHRIST, who was, and is, and is to come, whose victory is before our eyes so that we never waver or become afraid. Give us your SPIRIT so that we may live in this certainty and prepare ourselves more and more for our Savior’s coming into the world. May we come to know that Your loving-kindness is at work today, that in the end Your deliverance will come quickly, to the glory of Your great and mighty Name!! This we pray in JESUS’ marvelous Name! Amen.
Loved By Him,
Pastor Wally & Sister Mattie
