Scriptural Ground


Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners —of whom I am the worst (1 Timothy 1:15 NIV).


Prayer of Approach


O God of salvation and of grace, your interest in human lives continues in every generation from day to day. You are always seeking out that which was lost. Draw near this day once again to examine the condition of the life that I am living in this world. You know that I want to be cleansed from sin. You know that I want to be free to serve you. You know that I want to represent your interests in this world. Give me the assurance of your salvation as your presence once again purges my being of all that is displeasing in your sight. Let me now be washed thoroughly in the cleansing blood of the Saviour, Jesus Christ. Grant me the ear that hears your Word addressing my life that I may walk in your paths of righteousness for me. Fill me with a true desire to follow where you lead. Be the God who goes before me that your message of salvation may touch the lives of others.

Through the living Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ receive this prayer.



A Moment With God


Having the right perspective on what is of importance to the presence of God has everything to do with how we function in this world. It is only when we ourselves have experienced the work of God in our lives bringing us out of sin and giving us the power to keep away from sin in greater and greater measure that we want to share in His efforts to change human lives. What God has done for me He can do for someone else. When I have been the object of the saving work of Jesus then I can embrace fully the truth that Christ Jesus can bring true change to those whose lives have been falling short of God’s expectations for them. Have I been cooperating with what Christ Jesus has been doing in my life to lead me out of sin? Am I prepared to acknowledge the successes that He has had in changing me? Is it not better to be freed from the stranglehold of sin in my life than to remain bound by it? How much better life would be if those around me were also brought out of bondage to sin?
