“Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.”

Proverbs 22:6

“Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ.  He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.”

2 Corinthians 1:21-22

Comfort words of guarantee

God the Father speaks

to you and me.

Spirit breathes

new life,

renews

and keeps us close.

Even though we stray,

and sin has its way

our Savior

hears our cries,

forgives.

Such blessed assurance

and promise

for this day!

Lord God,  we give you thanks for your precious word that assures us that we are yours forever, that we stand strong and secure because of the faith you keep alive in our hearts.   Thank you for preserving us in the one true faith.  Grant that we live today in joyful service to you and to those around us, for Jesus’ sake.  Amen.
