John 3:14-15 “Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.”
Dear Jesus, lift my eyes to your cross which provided the only cure from the deadly disease of sin. In response, lift my heart that my work does not seem like a burden, but a delight. Whatever I face today, no matter if there are tasks that are monotonous and mundane, or challenges that are difficult and disheartening, may I find joy in serving you through them. In all I do, I desire to give glory to you because you rescued me from sin and death. You have given me the greatest gifts of all – forgiveness, new life, and salvation. Therefore, I desire to express this joy in my heart AND in my life. Help me to so today and every day. In your name I pray. Amen.
