We Need You

Eternal God, we thank you for this day and we bless You, Lord, for being exactly who You are.  We bless You for being our Savior, Redeemer and Friend because You give us what we need and not necessarily what we want.  And what we need is You, we need You to simplify the complexity of this world into the beautiful simplicity of Your truth.  The truth that says all people are loved and redeemed by God.   So change the atmosphere around us with Your Holy Spirit and bring joy back into our lives.  Bring joy back into our relationships and our jobs…bring joy back into our words and actions so that we can experience You as never before.  See, no one can take away what we have experienced.  So let us experience the Deliverer, the Provider, and the Comforter.  Let us experience Grace and the God who is the friend of sinners.   Let us experience Your dream for us to live a life full and rich in the love of Christ so that we break the cycle of doing bad things.  Be our vision so that we can stop being just spectators of other peoples battles and instead we can be advocates for the human family of God. So what can we give to Eternity?  We can give a life lived in Your Holy Word.  We can love as we are loved.  We can seek justice for those who the world hates.  We can forgive as we have been forgiven.   And when the world tells us to quit, that we’ve done enough, remind us that it is always to soon to quit.  The message of God’s love needs to be heard and heard and heard again.  And we need to tell it to as many people so that no one misses the opportunity to hear the good news that they are loved.
