Saturday’s Prayer: We are not!

But we do not belong to those who shrink back and are destroyed, but to those who have faith and are saved. ‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭10:39

O Lord, this is who I am.  I am your child.  You bought me with the blood of your Son and you clothed me in his righteousness.  O Jesus, you poured out your Holy Spirit and filled me with him.  I am a temple for the Holy Spirit.  O Father, I am your dear child, whom you are not ashamed to call your own.  Jesus, I am your brother and you are not ashamed of me.  And as such I do not belong to this who shrink back and am destroyed.  I’m holding you, dear Jesus, by faith.  I’m gripping tightly to this confidence that I have by faith that I am yours and you will not let go.  Save me, O God, for I am yours.  You made it so in my baptism.  You assured me of it at your table.  Your word tells it to me every day. I do not belong to those who shrink back.  I am one of those who have faith, who grips you tightly, and am saved.  Amen.
