A Good Day for the Kingdom

1 Peter 1:13-17 (NLT) 
     13 So think clearly and exercise self-control. Look forward to the gracious salvation that will come to you when Jesus Christ is revealed to the world. 14 So you must live as God’s obedient children. Don’t slip back into your old ways of living to satisfy your own desires. You didn’t know any better then. 15 But now you must be holy in everything you do, just as God who chose you is holy. 16 For the Scriptures say, “You must be holy because I am holy.” 17 And remember that the heavenly Father to whom you pray has no favorites. He will judge or reward you according to what you do. So you must live in reverent fear of him during your time as “foreigners in the land.”

Father, you remind us through your Word that you have called us to think clearly, be self-controlled, live obediently, and honor you with reverent behavior because you have called us to be holy. You expect our redemption to be expressed in true Christian living, and rightly so.

We thank you Father that not only have you called us, you also enable us by your Spirit and through your grace and mercy to be want you want us to be. This too is our desire: to honor you, please you, glorify you and be the light of truth and hope in a world of darkness, despair and disillusionment.

We pray, Father, that this day will be a good for your Kingdom when your glory will fill the earth through the lives of your loving, obedient children. 

We ask this in the Name of Your beloved Son and our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
