Lord God, we thank You for the gospel – the good news of Your Son, and how He saves! This gospel reveals who You are, and is hope for sinners like us.
Yet forgive us for being ashamed of this gospel. Forgive us for when this shame, is revealed through our disobedience.
When instead of going to the lost – we wait for them to come to us. Instead of sharing the gospel – we talk about everything else.
Instead of loving our neighbour as ourselves – we leave them be, and pass them by. Father, forgive us! Renew our wonder at Christ, and His gospel!
Stir in us a fresh appetite for evangelism, and for seeing the lost come home to You. We ask all these things in Jesus’ name, amen.
