Dear God,

I know that I am not worthy to be accepted by you.

I don’t deserve your gift of eternal life.

I am guilty of rebelling against you and ignoring you.

                  I need forgiveness.

Thank you for sending your son to die for me

         that I may be forgiven.

         Thank you that he rose from the dead

         to give me new life.

Please forgive me and change me,

                           that I may live with Jesus as my ruler.     Amen

One response to “4. Rebellion

  1. Hi Phillip,
    I am preaching on Isaiah 53 this week.
    I am working now with Anglicare at Castle hill in pastoral care. Was retrenched from CMS due to lack of funds in 2020.
    ( yes and as I write that, I remembered you were a major player in my life direction both at UNSW in 1979 and at the cathedral in 2002 when you told me to flee)
    Anyhow, I just watched this talk and am so encouraged and resource to talk to my 85-102 year olds this Friday. The pirate in particular will be so easily understood by these peeps.
