Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. (Ephesians 5:1-2 ESV)
Отже, будьте наслідувачами Богові, як улюблені діти, і поводьтеся в любові, як і Христос полюбив вас, і видав за нас Самого Себе, як дар і жертву Богові на приємні пахощі. (ефесян 5:1-2 Ukrainian)
Our Father who is in heaven ~ your name is holy and precious to all who love and obey your beloved Son. Grant us wisdom and courage to live what we profess. Guide us as we pay more close attention to the working of your Spirit in convicting sinners as the gospel message is proclaimed to people lost in the darkness of sin. Lift up the arms of those who daily exert their strength to bring about peace and love among Christians and families. Silence the evil influence of anyone who may be suggesting that the painful and bloody sacrifice of Christ on the cross never happened, or that everyone is going to heaven even if they do not trust and obey Christ as Lord. Fervently in the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
David Binkley, Sr. Gospel Minister
