“The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of His being, sustaining all things by His powerful word.” — Hebrews 1:3
We worship You, Lord Jesus Christ, as God in “homespun and sandals,” come down to perfectly reveal to us the character of the Father. When we want to know what God is like, we can look at You. When we want to know what’s in His heart and what’s on His mind, we can look at You. You illuminate the darkness of our circumstances and the chaotic confusion of our world, giving hope for the future. You are the marvelous, everlasting and all-powerful Light that shines abroad in our hearts that we might no longer walk in the darkness of deception, fear, ignorance and evil, but in the love and light of Your glory.
We repent of tarnishing Your glory with our bitterness, meanness, unforgiveness, pridefulness, unkindness, rudeness, self-righteousness or any sin that makes others think less of You. We repent of giving others the impression that You tolerate sin because we do.
We ask, as we repent of our sin, that You cleanse and fill us with Yourself so that Your church is filled with Your glory.
We ask that Your church, once again, be the Light of the world, like a city on a hill that cannot be hidden, beckoning the lost to come home to You.
We ask that our conduct and character would make others want to know You, to love You, and to put their trust in You.
