It is good news that the work of salvation has been completed by Your Son. It is no longer we who live but Christ who lives in us. Our chains have been broken. For freedom Christ has set us free.
Yet we continue to submit ourselves to the yoke of slavery. We chain ourselves to the approval of men. We work slavishly for achievements. We run ourselves dry believing we just have to try harder.
Forgive us for our little faith. Forgive us for not resting in the finished work of Jesus. Help us not to be distracted with much serving. Help us cast out our anxious and troubled hearts. Help us find rest by sitting at the feet of Jesus.
For by grace we have been saved through faith. This is not our own doing. You have chosen us to be recipients of the gift of free grace. We thank You and praise You in Jesus’ name.
