God did not design us to boss ourselves. He formed us to require authority so wed live in the safety of his careful rule.
My Jesus, according to Your Word, whoever has Your commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves You. He who loves You will be loved by Your Father, and You too will love him and show Yourself to him (John 14:21). O God, please help me to live obediently and have the joy of seeing You revealed in all sorts of marvelous ways.
O Christ, cause Your love to absolutely compel me. Help me to be convinced that because One died for all, therefore all died. Help me to realize and fully appreciate the fact that because You died for all, we who live should no longer live for ourselves but for You who died for us and was raised again (2 Cor. 5:14-15).
