Thursday, March 3, 2016                            Thy Will Be Done  


And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.  John 6:39-40

Lose nothing. Salvation of the believer is secure in Chris, who lets not of His own slip through his fingers. [Cf.1 Peter 1:3-5] looks. Seeing Jesus through the eyes of faith, “The chief worship of the Gospel is to desire to receive the forgiveness of sins, grace, and righteousness” (Apology V 189) [1]

How is God’s will done? God’s will is done when He breaks and hinders every evil plan and purpose of the devil, the world, and our sinful nature, which do not want us to hallow God’s name or let His kingdom come; and when He strengthen and keeps us firm in His Word and faith until we die.[2]   

Keep watch over you church, O Lord, with your unfailing love; and, since it is grounded in human weakness and cannot maintain itself without your aid, protect it from all danger, and keep it in the way of salvation; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen[3]

Father, into Thy hands I commend myself; my body and soul and all things.
