Being right

Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they are doing (Luke 23:34; NLT).

Father,

Being right
Is not important –

Making peace
Is important;

Forgiving
Is important;

And loving
Must remain

Our highest
Goal.

Our task

Do not judge others, and you will not be judged (Matthew 7:1-2; NLT).

Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ (Ephesians 5:2; NLT).

We will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ (Ephesians 4:15; NLT).

He loves us with unfailing love (Psalm 117:2; NLT).

*********************************

Father,

Our task
Isn’t judging
Other people,

Or telling them
What they should
Say and do.

Instead,

It’s to become
Much more
Like Jesus –

Righteous,
Holy,
Loving all,

Like you.

Faith

The […] Spirit gives great faith (1 Corinthians 12:9; NLT).

My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? (Mark 15:34; NLT).

Father, I entrust my spirit into your hands! (Luke 23:46; NLT).

***************************************

Lord Jesus,

Give me faith
As strong as yours;

For even when you felt
Utterly forsaken by our Father,

You still trusted him
Completely,

Committing your soul
Into his hands

At the very moment
Of your death.

For this is what
The Lord our God commands.

Love everyone,
Exactly as they are –

For this is what
His Son still teaches us.

Love everyone,
Exactly as they are –

For this is what
His Spirit most desires.
