Day 9 God is the Son
Vision: We Look Up in worship of a holy and righteous God.
Pray this with us…
Father, thank you for loving me so much that you sent your Son to accomplish everything I couldn’t: live a perfect life, die in my place, and be resurrected in power to redeem me from sin and rescue me from death. Thank you for revealing Jesus as your child, and he walked in obedience to you. And thank you that by including me in his sacrifice, you have made me one with him and you. No longer am I broken, weak, and unworthy. By Jesus’ blood, I share in his Sonship, and all that entails!
Purpose of the Prayer
God is our Father, which means that he is the head of the family. And Jesus is his Son, which reveals to us what being God’s child looks like – since “as he is so also are we in this world.” And this is true for everyone who confesses that Jesus is the son of God and abides in his love. As Jesus was crucified on the cross, he took the world’s sin on himself. And we were crucified with him, so the life we live is Christ’s who lives through us by faith. His life in us, expressing his Sonship which we share, and express through faith as children of our Heavenly Father.
I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20
By this is love perfected with us, so that we may have confidence for the day of judgment, because as he is so also are we in this world. 1 John 4:17
