Turn to Jesus and experience his mercy

Be kind to me, O God, be kind. I'm turning you for safety with the entirety of who I am -- my very soul. That's how seriously I need your mercy. ~ Psalm 57:1a (ABP)

Dearest children, I'm am writing to you because its through Jesus that you are forgiven of your sins. ~ 1 John 2:12 (ABP)

KEY IDEA:
Turn to Jesus and experience his mercy.
PRAYER:
Dear God, thank you for sending your Son into the world to rescue us from being prisoners of sin. Continue to pour out your mercy on me because even though I know that I am forgiven and set free -- I still have some attachments to the old sinful ways. I know that you totally understand all that is happening to me and that your kindness cannot be derailed. I need to know how secure I am in you so that I can start to live into my forgiveness. I'm going to live the new life that Christ is developing in me. Amen.
