The great question we ask, O gracious Lord, is why. And the greatest why of all: our creation. Why did the self-sufficient God make us in your own image? Why go to the bother? What do you get out of this deal? You didn’t need us. For some reason, you desired us. By our creation you showed us that love seeks expression.
In that truth, Father, we want to be like you. Help us to stop seeking affirmation for the self, in order to search for souls in need of love.
To go outside of self is glory from heaven. This is the glory we seek, and so is glorifying to you.
Praise to your name and to the Lord Jesus Christ, our Savior and example of ultimate love!
