5          His Death is Our Sanity

 

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.
