Almighty God, you are utterly holy and opposed to the darkness of sin. And our heart was set in sin, finding any kind of way to act out our ignorance and rebellion towards you. We would be cast out entirely, but in your mercy you have made us truly righteous. Because of Christ we have been washed completely clean and are holy in your sight. Thank you Lord, that we can now call your our dear Father and are welcomed to your family. Please continue to pour out your mercy and transform our day to day life to reflect who we are in Christ.
