Heavenly Father, thank You for the Word of God and the truths that it contains. Thank You for this example, which contrasts the pure motive of one man with the deceptive actions of others.. reminding us that God knows the thoughts and intents of the heart. I pray that the words of my mouth, the actions I do and the inner motives of my mind, would always be acceptable to You, my God and my Redeemer, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that holy apostles and prophets of old, were moved by God to write both the Old and New Testaments. Thank You that they were used to lay the sure foundation upon which our faith is secure. Thank You that Jesus is the Rock of our salvation, the Cornerstone of our faith and the Anchor of our soul. We praise You that Your Holy Spirit guided holy men of God into all truth, as the gospel was revealed to them, as which was penned Scripture for our learning. Thank You in Jesus name, AMEN.
