2 Thessalonians 2: 16-17

23 December, 2020

May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and in his grace gave us unfailing courage and a firm hope, encourage you and strengthen you to always do and say what is good. 2 Thessalonians 2:16–17

We bow, lowly and humble, in the highest adoration and obeissance, before you, our magnificent, omnipotent God, who is so majestic in glory and bearing, that it overwhelms us that you love us, disgraced and fickle mankind, with a love so absolute, beneficent and zealous that you took human form and came into the world, to destroy our evil foes, and free us from the chains of bondage.

You have given us an earthly span of life so meagre and negligible and yet we focus our complete attention and endeavors on this illusory existence, forgetting that our purpose of life is to glorify and magnify our creator God for the splendor of your creation.

Yet, you gave us a new life in Christ, who, through the sacrifice of his life, his resurrection and ascension into heaven, created a new heart for us, giving us the consolation of the Holy Spirit, through our baptism and renewal al of our faith. We consecrate our lives to you, Lord, for you have redeemed us from sin and death and made us righteous through your righteousness.

We turn to you in our every need, for whenever we seek you with a pure and fervent heart, we find you are already waiting, with open arms. Your Holy word is our armor against devilry and we gain power to become resolute and firm in our faith, enriched in fortitude and resilience by carrying out your holy will. Help us to always acknowledge you as our God and our Father, in Jesus’ Name. Amen
