Galatians 3:26-27

So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. Galatians 3:26-27

God of Righteousness, we worship in awe and wonder before you, our Mighty Creator, and dare to call you Father, with joyous hearts, because of your perfect and pure love for us, raising our stature to that of your children, kindred of your beloved Son and our most beloved Messiah and Savior Jesus Christ.

Jesus, with perfect obedience to your Holy Will and your plans for our restoration and deliverance, became incarnate, born as a mortal human being and living amongst men, training and purifying them through his ministry on earth. He revealed the great plan of salvation for mankind, through baptism in the Spirit, and his death and ascension to wipe out our sins. He sealed our relationship with you, Father, through your new covenant of love and faith. We dwell in Christ and he in us, through the power of your spirit and through your sanctifying grace we have been adopted to sonship.

By the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus, we have also been crucified and resurrected to a new life with him and in him and a new faith in your healing grace of which we are recipients by the law of faith in Christ and not by the law of works of human hands. As long as we abide in Christ we are acclaimed children of God, and have a place reserved for us in the eternal kingdom, gazing on your countenance and glorifying your holy name, for eternity, in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen
