“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. (Matthew 11:28)
“God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)
“This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners. (1 Timothy 1:15)
“If anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. He is the propitiation for our sins (1 John 2:1-2)
These words give me comfort for my labor is not enough so I get rest in you Lord Jesus. That you came to those who believe in you that we should not perish. That you came to save us sinners. That you stand with the father and advocate for me….Yes me despite the person I was…..I am….and will be….
Lord Jesus I praise you for your faithfulness even when I am not. I praise you for your patience even when I’m not. I praise you for the ability to be used by you in ministry what a privilege. I pray that you would take away the filth in my heart, that you would fill me with wisdom, that you would change me day by day, year by year. I pray that you would cleanse my heart and make it new. Take my pain and my sorrows. Lord I pray that I would pray to you more often. I pray that I would not pray in disbelief but expectantly. I pray that I would not give up on your work because it doesn’t match my timing. I pray that you would forgive me for any lack of Aw, any lack of obedience, any lack of faith. Please Lord Jesus transform my mind, my heart, my soul. Day by day I need you, I desperately need you Jesus. Show me the way to love others, to love you in a true and meaningful way. Christ help me to share the good news of your gospel with a world that tells me they don’t want you. Give me courage Lord Jesus, give me strength.
