Jesus Christ, my Lord, I have sinned. I fall short. I’ve stumbled and cried. I’ve been stubborn and self-righteous. I’ve caused others to fall. I can’t get through even a single day without breaking the rules and turning from you.
Thank you Lord for turning me back, helping me stay focused, reminding me of the wages of my sin. Help me Lord – today – the day we remember your sacrifice. The day we watch you carry your cross, we mock you as you’re nailed to the cross for our sins, as we spew our disappointments that you are not the Christ of our own design. You will not die in vain.
Thank you for your gift of eternal life, wrapped in a very strange but beautiful package of sacrifice. Help me Lord to remember you today; especially your love for – me. Amen
