Peter replied, “Each of you must repent of your sins and turn to God, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. Then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Acts 2:38 NLT
Most High God, I love You and I give You thanks and praise! You and You alone are worthy of all praise, honor, and glory! Thank You for all of the gifts that You have given us. Remind us each today as we move into a season of giving that You and You alone have given us exceedingly more than we could ever imagine. Your gifts are too great and to innumerable to comprehend. As I come before You and bow my heart at Your feet praying both for my brothers and sisters as well as myself I ask that You would impress this on our hearts so that we may stay focused on You. We celebrate this season because You sent Your Son to be born of a virgin into this sin stained world of humanity. He came and grew up and lived a sinless life that we may know how to live. The greatest gift that we have ever received from You Father, is the gift of salvation that comes thorough His taking our sin, and becoming the sacrifice to pay for that sin with His own life so that we don’t have to die. You raised Him gloriously on the third day into life victorious over death and sin. To You, Yahweh God we are eternally grateful for this wonderful free gift. Thank You for sending Your Holy Spirit to live within us that we may know You more. Fill us with His presence more and more each day. Go with us know and shine down Your glorious face upon us. In Christ’s name I pray; AMEN!
