Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins to deliver us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen. (Galatians 1:3-5 ESV)
Hymn ELH 451:1,4 All That I Was
All that I was, my sin, my guilt,
My death, was all mine own;
All that I am I owe to Thee,
My gracious God, alone.
Thy Word first made me feel my sin,
It taught me to believe;
Then, in believing, peace I found,
And now I live, I live!
Heavenly Father, thank You for sending Your Son to pay for my sins and deliver me from this evil age. Forgive me when I break Your commands and give me peace through my Savior, Jesus Christ. In His name I pray. Amen.
