John 12:37-50

Father, every bit of the person You’d have me to be, I long to be.

****************************************************************************

“When  push came to shove they cared more for human approval than for God’s glory” (v 43 MSG)

Father, set my eyes on You.  Shape my desires to be for You.  Keep me from chasing after the things the world has, offers, or pushes.  You are my Lord, my true Source of all things, including approval, acceptance, and value.  Because I belong to You, have accepted Your Son’s sacrifice for my sins, You have set Your mark of approval on me.  You have chosen to accept all of me, not only the good parts, but all that’s me.  You have esteemed me, conveying high value of who I am in Your sight.

How silly for me to seek these things from humans.  Even I can’t give others enough of these things; so how could I expect to find any humans who could do such for me?  It ALL goes back to You.  I need You.  I want to be like You, Jesus.  Thank You for accepting me.  Thanks for continuing to transform me.  May my life express YOUR love and mercy to others this day.  Amen.
