Now may God himself, the God of peace, make you pure, belonging only to him. May your whole self—spirit, soul, and body—be kept safe and without fault when our Lord Jesus Christ comes.
-1 Thessalonians 5:23 (NCV)
God of peace, we bow before You and thank You for washing away the power of sin’s grip on our lives. You make new beginnings a reality through Your Holy Spirit’s transformation of our hearts as we yield to belonging to You.
