A Prayer For Today

"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 6:23).

When I read this passage, Lord, I am often more prone to feel dismay than gratitude. Thank you, God, that in Jesus I am saved. Thank you for your gift of eternal life! Help me to know your love and passion shown in the act of redemption. At times your promises are so hard to believe! "For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him" (2 Corinthians 5:21). Please forgive me for my sins and help me to know righteousness. Forgive me for making it necessary for Jesus to become sin for me. I am so thankful that I am redeemed and have a relationship and renewed fellowship with you. Thank you for making a way for me to become righteous in your sight. I praise you and want to honor you, God. Thank you, Jesus, my Savior. Thank you, Holy Spirit, my Motivator and seal of redemption. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
