VERSE OF THE DAY
Jesus said, “Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. Go instead to my brothers and tell them, I am ascending to my Father and your Father , to my God and your God.”
Reference – THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO JOHN : Chapter 20 Verse 17 ( NIV )
Abba Father, we thank you for giving us one more day to be in your presence , to worship you and glorify you, marvelling at your infinite wisdom and the works of your mighty hand. We thank you for sending us your Son Jesus, to save us from the bondanges of sin, for he paid the price for our disobedience. Through obedience to your holy will, he has redeemed us , the children of Adam, from the chains of eternal death . He has clothed us in righteousness, bought with his own sacrifice, so that we may be called the children of God. Forgive us Father, for not understanding your deep love for us, taking your mercy and compassion for granted, for our prodigal ways. Father, remove the hearts of stone in us and give us a heart of flesh, that we may listen, listen well to the voice of your Holy Spirit whom you have sent to us when Jesus ascended into the heaven to be with you. Father, thank you for the assurance of our future through the continuing work of Thy Spirit in us. Bless us O Lord and fill us with thy Spirit that we may grow in your grace and bear good fruits and spread the good news to our brethren,the good news that all who call upon the name of Jesus shall be set free by the power of His mighty name and be inheritors of His eternal kingdom that is to come. We thank you for this gift of love and righteousness, given to us in all its fullness , for Jesus paid the price in full and has ransomed us . Praise and glory be to the Father , Son and Holy Spirit. Now and forever more. Amen.
