Friday Morning, Week 10

O Jesus, You have called us with a holy calling. We desire to be worthy of the honor which You have put upon us. You have redeemed us by Your blood. You have taken us into fellowship with Yourself. You are not ashamed to call us brethren. You have made us heirs of God, joint heirs with You. You have given us eternal life!

Make us indeed worthy of this exalted honor. Cleanse and purify us, that we may be like You in spirit, in disposition, in character. Give us the same desires that are in Your heart — that we may hate what You hate, and love what You love. May we be partakers in Your work for the upbuilding of Your cause and the extending of Your kingdom.

Give us this day, the same mind that was in You. You left Your heavenly glory and became man, that You might be our Redeemer. You lived to serve — giving out Your life in unsparing service, even dying in love for Your people. We desire to have the same spirit. Save us from all selfishness, which would lead us to withhold ourselves from serving others with the best that is in us. Save us from all pride, which would lead us to think of ourselves more highly than we ought to think, and may we ever be clothed with humility. Lead us into Your ways of service.

Lord Jesus, help us to live this day, as You would live if You were here in our place. May we be holy, harmless, undefiled, and separate from sinners. May we be kindly in all our relations as a family, and with those outside. Help us to be diligent in all our business. May we live unspotted from the world. Bless us in all ways in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
