Thank You, Father for giving us your Spirit who does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. Praise You for saving us, calling us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of your own purpose and grace. Thank You for this grace given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time, but has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. Lord, enable us keep what we have heard from your servants as the pattern of sound teaching, with faith and love in Christ Jesus. And let us guard the good deposit that was entrusted to us—guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in us. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
