God's Minute

May 11

But the fruit of the Spirit is love.--Galatians 5:12

GOD of love and of infinite compassion, Who hath taught us to call Thee "Our Father which art in Heaven," and hath revealed that "like as a father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth them that fear Him," we approach Thy Throne with reverence and humility.

We have sinned and come short of Thy glory. When we would do good, evil is present with us. Yet, Lord,we never can be satisifed until we awake with Thy likeness. Have mercy upon us, O God, according to Thy loving kindness. According unto the multitude of Thy tender mercies, blot out our transgressions.

May Christ dwell in our hearts by faith, that we being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to apprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and depth and height; and to know the love of Christ which passeth all knowledge, that we may be filled with all the fullness of God. Yea, Lord, may we grow up into Him in all things, Who is our living head, and daily bear the fruits of the Spirit, that men may take the knowledge of us that we have been with Jesus.

In His Name,

Amen.
