“When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory” (Colossians 3:4).
Saint John says it this way, “What we will be we do not know, but this we know: we shall be like Christ.” You are a creation in process. You are being made into a child of the Heavenly Father. Stay the course and fight the good fight. Be guided by the Holy Spirit and not by the world. Know that in the Lord there is all hope and the glory of salvation. Do not be conformed to this world, but to the Lord.
Lord, You know all of the difficulties I face. You know what it is like to fight against the trends of this world. Lead me in holiness so that I may be guided always by You. Lead me to see through the smoke of this age and stay the course of becoming, this path upon which You have placed me through grace. You know what lies before me. Prepare me for the steps I need to take, for the journey ahead of me, and grant that I may not lose heart.
Lord Jesus, You went to the cross so that we may have true life and have it abundantly. Guide me today and every day in the way of the Gospel in order that I may grow in Your likeness. Let me receive all that comes knowing that all of these things are preparing me for what the Father has always intended. Guide me now and always in the way of truth and help me stay consistently on the path You set before me. Amen.
