Praying to be Worthy of the Gospel

by Paul Tautges | March 15, 2012 1:55 am

Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel (Phil 1:27).

FATHER, by Your grace and for Your glory, You called me to Yourself through the gospel. It is now Your will that I be conformed in heart, mind, and life to the image of Your Son.

LORD JESUS, by Your humility, steadfast love, and submission to the Father, You purchased me from the kingdom of darkness and the slave-market of my sin. It is now Your desire to present me back to the Father as a member of Your pure, blameless, and fully-sanctified bride—the church.

HOLY SPIRIT, by Your regenerating power you made me alive in Christ and by Your indwelling power are in the process of transforming me into the likeness of Jesus, from glory to glory, as I behold Him in the mirror of the Word that You breathed out and discipline myself for godliness. It is now Your task to enable me to live a life worthy of the gospel, which is the power of God unto my salvation, and to enjoy the benefits of the gospel in unity with other believers.

By Your power, make my life worthy of the gospel of Jesus Christ. AMEN.
