“Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience” (Ephesians 5:6).
Listen carefully. Scripture has been written such that a child can easily understand it. Listen and do not be deceived by the empty words of this age. Jesus did not come to just dust you off and send you on your way. He came to reshape you into His image. You have been given the offer of becoming a child of God. The question is: whether or not you will submit yourself to Him as He has laid down His life for you.
Lord, You know all things and You know all that is needed. You know what I need and You know where I have lived being deceived. Guide me through the pitfalls of this world so that I would not fall into them. Let me take seriously the truth of salvation which You have given me. Place me upon the path I need to go and let me never fall out of Your sight. Keep me close to You always.
Lord Jesus, I need You, for without You, salvation is impossible. Guide me this day in the way of grace so that I would hunger and thirst for You and what You give. Lead me along the narrow way in order that I would forever be led by You. Let me not fall into the snares of the wicked one, but always keep my eyes upon You so that the wrath we all deserve would be overcome by the grace You have purchased. Amen.
