Heavenly Father, please help our group to live in light of salvation. Remind us of the dreadful weight of sin and the condemnation that was hanging over our heads, and fuel our joy to know that we have been spared through Christ. May we be motivated to persuade others of the gospel. Make us into ambassadors of Christ who plead on his behalf for others to be reconciled to you. May our faith always be evident in our lives, hanging onto Christ and rejoicing that he has made us new creations. Help us to keep enduring though hardship, and to always be looking to the spiritual fruit that it bears. May the incredible themes of the gospel shape our life, our thoughts, our actions.
