Heavenly Father, thank you for the way we were able to come together at NQCC and hear your word. Please help us to keep seeing the depth of our sin and the dreadful consequences that it has brought about. Help us also to keep holding on to the beautiful hope that we have in the new creation. Please keep us rejoicing in and clinging to the great confidence we have in Christ, who has made us into new people with transformed hearts and your Holy Spirit in us. May we keep walking in step with your Spirit and bring about glory to your name even now. Please keep shifting our gaze from ourselves to those around us who need to hear the great message of salvation and hope in Jesus.
