Great Are You Lord (Jordan and Leonard)
Scripture Reading: Matthew 7:12-13
Our Triune God,
Your thoughts are higher than our thoughts,
Your ways are above our ways,
We are stunned by the simplicity of your demands on our lives:
To love You, our Lord and God, and to love our neighbor as ourself.
You are Love. Before this galaxy existed,
You existed in loving community: Father, Son, and Spirit.
And yet as wonderful and delightful as your demands on us are,
Not one of us can even come close to matching your perfect Law of Love.
We thank you, Lord Jesus, that you not only taught us this Narrow Way,
But you walked it perfectly.
You loved your friends even to death,
And you gave yourself up for your enemies.
Give us a heart like Jesus Christ.
We thank you that by your transforming power,
We have become obedient from the heart.
Drive out the remaining darkness of sin,
And preserve us for the day of Christ’s return, we pray.
