Heavenly Father, how I praise You that in Your grace and wisdom You chose to redeem the human race, by grace through faith in the death, burial and resurrection of Your Son.. our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Help me to trust implicitly in Your Word of truth - and to depend on You in all things, for You are good and gracious towards the children of men.. and Your loving-kindness endures from one generation to another - in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your Word. Thank You for the lessons I can learn from the choices Adam and Eve made so long ago, when they chose to disobey Your Word. Thank You for the many insights into the devastating fall of man and the ease with which we can be deceived and tempted to sin against You - and forfeit Your many blessings. May I not only know the truth of Your word but trust You in all things, so that I will not be seduced by the lies of enemy nor enticed to follow the lusts of my own sinful heart. Thank You, Father, for Your wonderful plan of redemption and for sending Jesus, to be the last Adam and federal Head of a new creation through whom we are saved - by grace through faith. Thank You in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your plan of salvation. Thank You that in Your compassion, You did not leave humanity to die in our sin but to rise to life immortal through faith in Christ Jesus, our atoning sacrifice. Thank You for Your amazing plan of redemption that by the one righteous act of Christ Jesus our Lord many will be declared righteous and be forgiven of our sin, through faith in Him. Keep me low at the cross and broken before You and I pray that those who are still dead in their sin and at enmity with You would be convicted of their sin and turn to Jesus for forgivenss of sin and life everlasting - this I pray in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, how we praise and thank You for Your loving-kindness and gracious mercy towards mankind, by procuring our salvation - despite our rebellious sinfulness. Thank You that by His death on Calvary's cross.. the head of the serpent was crushed and his power over all who trust in You has been rendered inoperative. Thank You that Christ was prepared to be bruised for our iniquity, by taking the punishment upon Himself that we deserve - we are forever thankful for Your grace and mercy, and glorify Your holy name forever, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, what a wake-up call to realise the severe consequences that sin has had on all our lives and relationships. I pray that I may give greater heed to the instructions given to men and women - husbands and wives.. and I pray that in Your grace, I would honour my own spouse, and live my life in a way that honours You - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that in Your grace You designed Your perfect plan of salvation so that all who are born of Adam into the original creation that was cursed, may be born-again into Your new creation.. where death is defeated and fellowship with You is restored for all who believe in the death; burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ - the one and only sinless MAN Who willingly paid the price for my sin. Thank You for being willing to send You dearly beloved Son to be the propitiation for sin and thank You that Jesus was willing to die on my account so that death is swallowed up in victory and I am restored into fellowship with You - praise Your holy name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that the picture of Adam and Eve being covered in the skins of innocent animals, reminds us that Christ shed His blood for our sake, so that we could be forgiven of our sin, covered in His perfect righteousness and receive life everlasting. Thank You that You did not leave us to wallow in our sin, but set in motion Your perfect plan of redemption for whosoever believes in the atoning blood of Christ. Give me a greater understanding of the shocking effect of sin in the lives of individuals and the world at large, and thank You for Your unimaginable mercy, incalculable grace, infinite wisdom, and amazing kindness in sending Jesus to be the offering for my sin - thank You in Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
