I am at rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation, my stronghold; I will never be shaken.
— Psalm 62:1-2
Rest in God alone, my soul, for my hope comes from him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation, my stronghold; I will not be shaken.
My salvation and glory depend on God, my strong rock. My refuge is in God.
— Psalms 62:5-7
Jesus, you have taught:
Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.
This is the first and greatest commandment.
And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.
All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.
Our Father, we ask you to forgive us where we fall short of your commands.
We give you thanks for your promised forgiveness in Christ,
and we rejoice in your promised Spirit that guides us.
Help us as we seek to live in your kingdom.
For we are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from ourselves; it is God’s gift — not from works, so that no one can boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time for us to do.
— Ephesians 2:8-10
As we go, remember that you are held safely in the hands of a loving God.
As we live in his kingdom, may we remember the joy and refuge he provides.
Peace be with you all.
And also with you.
