Belonging to Jesus (based on a puritan prayer in the book, Valley of Vision)

O Heavenly Father,

Teach us to see that if Christ has pacified you and satisfied divine justice, he can also deliver us from our sins and the power of our sins;

that Christ does not desire us, now justified,
to live in self-confidence in our own strength
but gives us the law of the Spirit of life to enable us to obey you; that the Spirit and his power are ours by resting in Christ’s death;

We have seen you as you are in your Son and have been ravished to behold you. We bless you that we are your own people in our dear Savior Jesus.

Amen
