Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Christ Loves the Church

Ephesians 5:25-27 (NLT)
     25 For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her 26 to make her holy and clean, washed by the cleansing of God’s word. 27 He did this to present her to himself as a glorious church without a spot or wrinkle or any other blemish. Instead, she will be holy and without fault.

Father today I just want to thank you for the Church. The people who have responded to your call to trust in your Son to be their Savior. Those who believe in him, love him, and serve him. As the Church we know that we are a work in progress, a faith that is growing and lives that are becoming more like Christ. Father it is your grace, mercy, wisdom and power that makes this possible, for which we are eternally grateful.

Father I also want to thank you for the triune love of God, (Father, Son, Holy Spirit). And that your love has been so gloriously revealed in the sacrificing, serving and sanctifying love of Christ who suffered, died and rose again for us. And I pray with the Apostle Paul that: “Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. 21 Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.” Ephesians 3:20-21 (NLT)
