‘O God, be merciful to me a sinner.’
I tell you, (he) went home justified, not the former;
for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled,
and the one who humbles himself will be exalted. – Luke 18: 13 – 14
Reflection through Songs
When I think of the goodness of Jesus, and all He has done for me
My soul cries out, “alleluia”
Praise You God for saving me.
He is worthy, Lord You’re worthy
He is worthy, to be praised.
He is lovely, Lord You’re lovely
Lord You’re lovely, and You’re praised.
He is Holy, Lord You’re holy
Lord You’re holy, Holy and praised.
He is faithful, Lord You’re faithful
Lord You’re faithful, and You’re praised.
Lord we praise You, Lord we praise You
Lord we praise You, Lord be praised.
Lord we love You, Lord we love You
Lord we love You, Lord be praised.
Lord we honour You, Lord we honour You
Lord we honour You, Lord be praised.
Lord You’re merciful, Lord You’re merciful
Lord You’re merciful, and You’re praised.
Lord, today we reflect on Your teaching to humble ourselves before You.
We are not to think of ourselves as being “good enough” before God – so that we do not fall into the trap of boasting about our righteousness.
But we should always recount that it’s Your Precious Blood that saves us and makes us truly holy and worthy before the Father.
And so Lord Jesus, we ask for Your mercy.
For the times we have boasted, inwardly and outwardly, of our “righteousness” like the pharisee in today’s Gospel reading.
Lord Jesus we repent, and we ask You to be merciful to us sinners.
Wash us with Your Precious Blood that we may be whiter than snow.
Deliver us from our self-righteous attitudes and in Your great love, pour out upon us a spirit of meekness, holiness and humility.
Thank You Lord for hearing and answering our prayers.
Always & Forever,
To The Lamb.
With all my love.
