Oh Lord, I am so grateful for the cross. Thank You, Jesus, for paying the penalty I could not pay on my own. God, I have done some really bad things that I regret, but now I know that there is hope because of what You have done for us. I don’t have to wallow in my sinful state, for You have come and rescued me. I was once in darkness, but You have raised me up into newness of life. There is no license to sin anymore, for the Holy Spirit abound in me and wills me to Your will as it is in heaven. My only desire now is to fulfill Your mission through me while I have breath. The message of the cross needs to be made known to every person in this world. I am only one person and I know that You have called millions of others also to be Your witnesses. Wake them up. May each one of them respond to their calling. Lord, lead me from temptation. Help me to walk in Your light and be an example of the faith to my family. I want my wife and my two daughters to also know You, Jesus, and be saved. I long for that to happen. I love You, Lord. Thank You for the cross. Amen.
