“Paul, a servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ, for the sake of the faith of God’s elect and their knowledge of the truth, which accords with godliness” (Titus 1:1)
We are all slaves of the Lord. Do not think that we have any ability to negotiate with the Lord. He bids us come just as we are. Come and receive the grace and mercy you need. Come and be led in the truth of His ever-abiding word of truth. Know that He to whom you give your loyalty is the One who made all things. He gives you the promise of redemption and opens your eyes to truth.
Lord, all godliness comes from You alone. Help me, Lord, to walk humbly with You. Guide me in the way of truth so that, like Paul and all of the saints whom You have called over the ages, I might humbly submit to You, my Lord and my God. Lead me in truth, for Your word is truth. Guide me to put into practice these things which You are teaching me. Lord, You know all that is needed.
Lord Jesus, You have brought into my life all I need to submit and humbly walk with You. Guide me, O Lord, that I may now and always walk knowing that You are Lord. Lead me according to Your goodness in the way of grace and mercy. Lord, You know all that is needed. You know what I need. Lead me, Lord, so that I may live into the knowledge of truth and godliness which comes by Your grace alone. Amen.
