And he came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near. For through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father. (Ephesians 2:17-18 ESV)
И, придя, благовествовал мир вам, дальним и близким, потому что через Него и те и другие имеем доступ к Отцу, в одном Духе. (К Ефесянам 2:17-18 Russian)
Almighty God, our dear Father in heaven ~ thank you for this new day on which we receive fresh encouragement from your Sprit inspired Scriptures that leads us to knowledge of your beloved Son. Grant the peace that surpasses all normal understanding as we submit to Jesus as Lord by remaining faithful to his teaching that has come down to us in the Scriptures. Open the hearts and minds of those people who continue to refuse the message of grace. Bless all who teach the gospel of peace to handle it most carefully and present it with love. In Jesus name, Amen.
David Binkley, Sr. Gospel Minister
