Dear Father, Redeemer,
the gospel of salvation is the free gift of the greatest treasure we have ever been offered or received.
We neglect this salvation at our greatest peril,
since every transgression or act of disobedience receives a just penalty.
Father, obviously we don’t see all the impact of your saving work,
but we see Jesus in his humiliation and exaltation,
crowned with glory and honor.
God, you bring many sons and daughters to glory through the suffering of the pioneer of salvation.
It is Christ’s that made his saving work perfect,
sufficient for our salvation.
Through death, Christ destroyed death and the one who has power of death, and thus he frees all who fear death from it’s terror.
Father God, your son Jesus the Christ has become like us, his brothers and sisters, and for us he became a merciful and faithful high priest in the service of God, and so became a sacrifice of atonement for the sins of the people.
Thanks be to God, for through the tests your Son endured, you help us when we are tested.
