“This is the kind of life you’ve been invited into, THE KIND OF LIFE CHRISTI LIVED.
HE SUFFERED EVERYTHING THAT CAME HIS WAY so you would know that it could be done, and also know how to do it, step by step…
HE SUFFERED IN SILENCE, content to let God set things right.
HE USED HIS SERVANT BODY TO CARRY OUR SINS to the cross so we could be rid of sin, free to live the right way.
HIS WOUNDS BECAME YOUR HEALING.” (v 21-24 MSG)
Instill Your humility in me. Rip away any hint of the pride that hinders my heart being truly a servant’s heart.
Thank You for carrying my sin to the cross. Thank You for making me free by Your choice to shed Your blood for me. Thank You for healing my heart and soul.
You have MODELED the life You desire for me.
You have FREED me from the life You never intended for me.
You have HEALED this life You’ve given me.
“YOU WERE LOST SHEEP with no idea who you were or where you were going.
NOW YOU’RE NAMED AND KEPT FOR GOOD by the Shepherd of your souls.” (v 25 MSG)
Thank You for seeking me out. Thank You for rescuing me when You found me. Thank You for naming me as one of Your own. Thank You for keeping me as part of Your fold.
You, Lord, are my Shepherd. You tend my heart and guard my life. You guide my ways and save my soul. Keep transforming this sheep into the likeness of Jesus, the perfect Lamb of God. Amen.
