Jesus saves us

I am grateful
to Christ Jesus our Lord
for He strengthened me.

He judged me

He appointed me
to serve
even though I was not worthy.

But I received mercy
for God knows
I acted in ignorance
and unbelief
until the grace of our Lord
flowed over me
with faith and love
in Christ Jesus.

And so I am sure
of this saying
a worthy saying to behold
and fully accept
as full truth:

Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners


Prayer: Lord God, we praise You for Your forgiving love and salvation. Help us to be sensitive to Your gentle nudge whenever we err. Help us to seek, find, and remain open to Your help, Your power, and Your love for us in Jesus’ Name.
