Heavenly Father, when we look at your law we know we stand condemned. So often we might blinker our eyes to sin, being inwardly satisfied with ourselves for not doing this or that but fail to look at our hearts. Lord, please help us to look at our hearts and see the deep need of your work to be done there. Thank you that you have taken up this work of our hearts and that in Christ Jesus they are already made pure. But thank you that there is an ongoing work as well, that you are reshaping us to be like Christ. Please help us to teach ourselves what we might preach and warn to others. Transform us through your word in the power of your Spirit to make us your people, inwardly from the heart and not just as an outward facade.
