Discipline, Jesus is Lord, Trust

I want, I want, I want…

I want, I want, I want!

Me, Me, Me.

My, My, My.

Watching Captain Hook say these things in annoyance of the kids…

I set and think: Many of us want things-
iphones, ipads, ideas,
To see the World,
World Peace,
To End Hunger,

While these things are desirable- right now I ask you, Lord- please change our preferences so that we may want more of you. I declare that I want:

…be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith (Philippians 3:9)

When we accept Christ as our Savior, take on His name and take in His spirit, His righteousness is placed upon us. It is not our own semblance of righteousness (which is as filthy rags) that clothes us, but Christ’s own perfection (which is as robes of white).

My Prayer: Thank you, Lord, for Your love that allows me to be clothed in Your righteousness! May I never take it for granted! May I be found wanting more of you. In Jesus name, I pray, Amen.
