But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ.
Father God thank You for the precious blood that was shed on the cross for each of us. We no longer have to be held captive as a slave to man and are no longer alienated from You Father because we are fellow citizens, adopted into Your kingdom, the children of God. Thank You God of mercy that we are near and dear, the apple of Your eye. Continue to be our guide, bring us much closer and make us even more like You in our daily walk by faith. In Jesus name. Amen.
