But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. – 1 Corinthians 15:57
Eternal Father, All-powerful, Living God, as your chosen ranks, as your appointed ones, as your children, through adoption, as co-heirs to your Heavenly Kingdom, we exult in jubilation, in glory of our God. For you have saved us from the bondage and degradation of sinful lives, and you have raised us to righteousness, by your beloved Son’s sacrifice, which redeemed us and restored us to our Creator, our rightful Ruler and Master.
Your love and mercies and faithfulness are unfathomable, for it is you Who created us, Who breathed life into us, and Who renews us day after day. Jesus, came down to save us and to restore your great glory, in obedience of your plan. He became sin, for our sakes, and ransomed his life, thereby nailing the sins of the world to the Cross of our Salvation and forever destroying its claim over us. He was raised on the third day and will raise us on the last day.
We praise and thank you Father, and we follow and will live in Jesus forever, for He has justified us before you, Father God. He has given us the Spirit of Truth, to enliven and rekindle our faith and our hearts, and we live each day by the power of the Holy Spirit in us, spreading our joy and peace, through your Holy Word, to the ends of the earth, as living testimonies of the eternal victory Christ has gained for us. As Christians and the members of Christ’s Body, we will tell of the glory of your majesty and the power of your love, in Jesus’ Name. Amen
