“He Will Save His People”
Lord, help us to admit that we are lost and that left on our own we will remain lost; help us to admit that even after we are saved from our lostness we tend to wander off on our own and thereby get ourselves in trouble.
Help us to acknowledge our sins, particularly the primary sin that causes us to try to be our own god and to try to find our own say, attempts that lead us to the secondary sins that are symptomatic of the primary one.
Show us the basic and simple wisdom of trusting you and depending on you and following you for the sake of our life here and for the sake of our life in the hereafter.
Thank you for your Son Jesus, whose name means “Salvation” and in whom you graciously provide a way to trust in you daringly, to depend on you fully, and to follow you recklessly.
“She will bear a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins” (Matthew 1:21).
