God in Christ in Us

Father, I see Your holy beauty in Jesus Christ.
Though He is fully human,
He is fully,
gloriously You.

Father, You have given us His Spirit,
so display Him through us,
His Church.
When the world sees us, may they glimpse
His holy heart and
His holy life.
May they sense both
His divinity and
His beautiful humanity.
May they feel
His compassion,
His gentle patience, and
His generous heart.
May they taste
His joy,
His deep peace, and
His flaming passion for You.

Through us,
may they come to know Christ;
and through Christ,
may they come to know You.

Dream Greater Dreams

All the believers were one in heart and mind.
No one claimed that any of his possessions was his own,
but they shared everything they had.
(Acts 4:32, NIV)

Lord, I waste so much time and energy on
my personal needs and concerns.
I lavish so much of my thought on
making myself look good and on
fulfilling my personal dreams.

Lord, raise my eyes,
raise my heart
from the “me” to the “we.”
Wean me from foolish selfishness with all its burdens.
Teach me to dream dreams for Your Body.
Catch me up in the well-being of Your people.

Spirit of Christ,
take over my mind.
Take over my heart.
Fill my hands, my words, my life
with the beautiful love of Christ.
