VERSE OF THE DAY
God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world. And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become as much better than the angels, as He has inherited a more excellent name than they.

Abba Father, we thank you for this time we are getting to spend in your presence. Father, we worship you, we glorify you and we give you praise. Abba, as the world is observing Good Friday today ,we remember the greatest exchange that was done for humankind on the Cross of Calvary. We ascribe holiness to our almighty and immortal God . Thank you Lord Jesus for your atoning sacrifice on the Cross of Calvary. Thank you for the exchange you made on the cross for us, for the redemption of our race from eternal death .Because you hung for us on the Cross and was made sin , we are made righteous in the sight of the Father. Thank you for the forgiveness of our sins , for our deliverance from the claws of death, purchased by your precious blood. By your stripes we are healed. Because you suffered on the Cross, we are set free in the Name of Jesus . Our life is blessed, because you took on yourselves all our curses. You suffered pain ,shame and rejection, so that we could live a life devoid of condemnation. Because you shed your blood to the last drop ,bringing in the new covenant, we are no longer under the law. Now , we are under your grace. So much love dear Lord …so much love…what are we Lord , what are we ,that you who laid the foundation of the whole universe , you who created all that we are and all that we see, chose to be born in the form of a human ; chose to live a life devoid of sin, doing the will of the Almighty Father ; chose to be obedient to the very last breath you took on that Cross on Calvary ! You love us so much that you have chosen us to be worthy of your precious love . Yes lord , because of your mercy and love we are saved . It is finished ! we are no longer slaves to the evil one. Because you have won over death we have Eternal Life. Because of your eternal love, now we are called the children of God, the Most High . Abba Father, we caused you pain each time when we chose to be slaves to the lies of this world , because of our disobedient lives. Abba, help u sto understand that your thoughts for us far exceeds our own plans for our lives. You raised Jesus up from the dead, made him sit at your right hand and has honoured him. You have made him worthy of everyone’s worship and the heir of all things. Abba, help us follow Jesus in everyday of our lives. May we honour you, just like how Jesus did, in every moment of our lives. Holy Spirit, teach us your ways so that we may live a life worthy of the love the Father has showered upon us, a life worthy of the life Jesus chose to live for us, a life worthy of the victory he won for us on the Cross through his sacrifice. Forgive our sins dear Father. Have mercy on us . Bless us . We give you all praise and glory . In the mighty name of your son Jesus we pray . Amen.
