Heavenly Father, thank You for my salvation and my redemption and that I am fully reconciled to You through the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank You that Jesus is the propitiation for my sins and that He was willing to identify with my sinfulness so that I may be eternally identified with His death and wonderful resurrected life - which I have received by grace through faith in His sacrificial work on Calvary's cross - praise His holy name. I pray that in the days ahead I set all else aside, except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.

“For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.”

Heavenly Father, what a wonderful example of a man of humility and grace, who did not seek to use His own wisdom, academic ability, intellectual stature or oratory skills in his ministry, but recognised his own human limitation and instead became a living sacrifice unto God. I pray that I will never seek to elevate my own importance in the eyes of man but present my life as a living sacrifice, holy to the Lord - so that in Your power I may be enabled to share the simple gospel of grace to a lost an dying world.. not in my own strength but in the strength of Him Who called me out of darkness, into His glorious light. This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.

“And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.”
