God our Father,
You love us all
And sent your Son.
You heard God’s message
Through you all things
You unify us
In God’s love.
This is real love – not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins (1 John 4:40; NLT).
Mary said, Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word (Luke 1:38; RSV).
God in all his fullness was pleased to live in Christ, and through him God reconciled everything to himself (Colossians 1:19-20; NLT).
We have all been baptised into one body by one Spirit, and we all share the same Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:13; NLT).
