3 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, 4 who gave himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, 5 to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
O Father, I live in a world that worships wealth and power and success. But when You saw that I needed to be saved from the seductive idols of my heart, You sent a Savior. And when You saw that I needed deliverance from my own sin, You sent a Deliverer. The One You sent was Your Son, and my deliverance cost Him His life. Still You did it for me. This was Your will, Your delight. I worship You with all my heart.
