Heavenly Father, thank You for the ministry of the apostle Paul, the magnificent treatise of Romans, and the clear exposition of every aspect of our great salvation. Thank You that salvation is not by works of the Law, nor is it dependent on race, parentage, nationality, education, or anything else, but by faith in Christ Jesus - Israel's Messiah and God's only begotten Son who died on the Cross to pay the penalty for our sin and rose victorious from the grave, so that we too may rise to life immortal. Help me to have a heart of compassion for the lost and give me opportunities to share the good news of the gospel with others. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, what am amazing plan of redemption – praise Your holy name. Thank You for Your people Israel and for Your plans for the Church. I pray that during my time on earth I may be a true witness of Your word – until You come to take us to be with Yourself. I also pray for the nation of Israel, that You would prepare the hearts of unbelieving Jews, who continue to be blinded to the truth that Jesus Christ is Israel’s Messiah. We pray that Your plans and purposes for mankind would continue to unfold – and will rejoice with all the angels in heaven, when Your chosen people finally cry out to the Lord for Salvation. This we ask in His name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, what a comfort to know that nothing will influence Your purpose and plan of redemption - just as there was nothing to influence Your sovereign choice of Jacob over Esau. Thank You that my salvation is not determined by my character, conduct, natural descent, or human merit - but was determined by You to be a gift of Your grace to all who believe on the Person and Work of the Lord Jesus Christ - my God and Saviour. I pray that I may live a life that honours Your name. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, I do not always understand Your ways but I praise and thank You that You have shown mercy to me and that by grace through faith in Christ I have been made a new creation in Him and given life eternal - thank You in His precious name, AMEN.
