Help me to see how close I can get to Jesus’ example,
Not how close I can get to the edge of sin.
Let the Lord Jesus be my measure of goodness,
Not the failures of those I see around me.
Keep me from feeling superior in the presence of sinners,
But humble and repentant in the presence of Christ.
I pray your Spirit will keep me from falling,
Just as he strengthened the Savior all the way to the Cross.
