As day unfolds, I seek Your will in all of life’s demands
And though the tempter tries me still, I cling to Your commands
Let every effort of my life display the matchless worth of Christ
Make me a living sacrifice; be glorified today
The Christian life isn’t one triumph after another. We endure suffering, sin, persecution, and temptation while fixing our gaze on Jesus’ promised coming. Through his substitutionary death and victorious resurrection He has guaranteed those He’s redeemed a future of eternal glory and joy. Until that day comes… we have work to do, friend.
In light of the recent texts we’ve been examining in 1 Peter 2-3 at FCL, we’re compelled to view our sacrificial submission in varying contexts – to government, to authorities, in marriage – as honorable and good. A Christian’s Daily Prayer is built on a wonderful lyric set that seeks daily grace to glorify the Lord, from the mighty to the mundane.
