Light for My Path Daily Devotion
Formerly, we all lived among them in the passions of our sinful flesh, as we carried out the desires of the sinful flesh and its thoughts. Like all the others, we were by nature objects of God’s wrath. But God, because he is rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, 5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in trespasses. It is by grace you have been saved! (Ephesians 2:3-5 EHV)
Hymn ELH 406:1 Lord, Thee I Love with All My Heart
Lord, Thee I love with all my heart;
I pray Thee ne’er from me depart,
With tender mercy cheer me.
Earth has no pleasure I would share,
Yea, heaven itself were void and bare
If Thou, Lord, wert not near me.
And should my heart for sorrow break,
My trust in Thee no one could shake.
Thou art the Portion I have sought;
Thy precious blood my soul has bought.
Lord Jesus Christ,
My God and Lord, my God and Lord,
Forsake me not! I trust Thy Word.
Heavenly Father, by the power of the Holy Spirit, You saved me from being a child of wrath and made me Your very own child by grace, through faith in Your Son Jesus Christ. Remind me each day of Your grace and mercy and of the love You have for Your children. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
