But there is a great difference between Adam’s sin and God’s gracious gift. For the sin of this one man, Adam, brought death to many. But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of forgiveness to many through this other man, Jesus Christ. Romans 5:15 NLT
Sovereign Father God, I love You! You are worthy of all thanks and praise! Thank You for this reminder today of the greatest gift of all, the gift of Your forgiveness and grace through Jesus Christ. It is a gift that we must accept and believe in but, a gift that You freely give. I bow my heart before You once again asking for Your mercy and grace. I claim the cleansing blood of Christ and in Him I put my faith and my trust as my Lord and Savior. I come to You with petitions of my own and with the burdens of my brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus as well to lay at Your feet. You know each and every burden, each and every affliction, all of the suffering, and each and every hope, dream, and desire. Please be gracious to us and answer each and every one. Shine Your glorious face upon us and fill us with Your Holy Spirit. Give us the courage and boldness to share this good news of Christ our Lord with others around us. Place within us each a giving and loving spirit. All glory, honor, and praise belong to You and You alone, God. I pray these things today in the name of Jesus Christ my Savior and my Lord; AMEN!
