Oh Lord, I pray that we will grow more and more in Your righteousness and holiness. Help us to shine Your light before people, that there will be more salvations. Even in our small communities, towns, or cities, help us gain the motivation and confidence to usher into the world Your gospel of hope. People need to realize that we have all sinned before You God. Nothing we have ever done is hidden before Your sight. Surely, our lives are an open book to a just and holy God, of whom I worship and give praise and honor. Yes, Lord, I worship You with all my heart, mind, and strength. There is nothing I’d rather have than Your presence in my life. I have so much more that is of worth when You are leading me, than if I was doing things on my own. I have a purpose, for I am a part of Your kingdom. Thank You, God. I give You thanks also for Your laws, of which the Holy Spirit helps me obey. Your teachings, God, are what motivates me to live each day and hour for Your cause. I am able to not lose focus, especially when I continue in Your Word daily and stay in constant prayer. Lord, thank You for Your forgiveness and grace. You died to save a wretch like me and billions of others in this world. We are not worthy of Your great love for us, but when we do come unto You, there is a restitution for all our sins. Thank You for no longer looking at them or keeping me guilty. I love You, God. Amen.
Romans 3:23-26 (KJV)
23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;
26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.
We have all sinned before a righteous God. But when we come unto Jesus with a sincere heart, we are justified and made clean.
