By Stephen W. Hiemstra
We praise you for your gift of salvation available to us through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, who, as our great high priest, transcends our weakness having been tempted as we are yet without sin (Heb 4:15). For out of Him, by means of Him, and into Him are all things created, sustained, and restored (Rom 11:36), for which we are grateful.
In the power of your Holy Spirit, work in us to complete our journey from isolation in our natural selves to the person that we were created to be, from isolation from others to persons able to offer hospitality to others, and from isolation from God to people of faith.
Enable us to follow the example of Jesus Christ who in life, in death, and in resurrection was merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness (Exod 34:6), even during persecution.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
