Father, how marvelous is Your indescribable grace that You should love a sinner such as I. Though I deserve death You grant eternal life through the death of Your beloved Son, Jesus. I am accepted into Your family, into the sainthood of all believers, through my redemption in Christ. So, too, I want to accept those who have turned to you in faith and obedience to who might be different, who break into my carefully etched out comfort zone. In doing so that I learn how to be more loving and learn how to bear with others in such a way that pleases and honor You. I come as a mix of Your love, mercy, and grace as I extend myself to others around me. Amen.
