For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us. (Psalm 103:11-12 ESV)
Hymn ELH 197:1 My Hope Is Built
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand.
Jesus, Savior, thank You for living a life without sin in my place and for offering Your life on the cross to pay for my sins. Remind me daily of Your love and help me to show that love to others through my words and actions. Give me opportunities to share Your Word with others, that they may also know the peace which comes from faith in You. Amen.
