Did you grow up hearing stories from the Bible? What’s your favorite?
Father, You have had a plan since the beginning of time to redeem the world You have created! You are loving and sovereign over this world.
Thank You for bearing my sin and shame on the cross. Thank You for taking my punishment. I am sorry when I fail to remember what You accomplished for me. It is not because of anything I have done; it is because You freely gave Yourself in obedience to the Father and in love for those who rejected You.
Conform me to Your image, gracious Master. Teach me to be familiar with suffering, and help me consider it a joy to suffer on Your behalf. Teach me to not complain and help me trust that You, the Suffering Servant, will guide me to joy eternal. Amen.
