Jesus Christ is the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loves us, and looses us from our sins by his blood; and made us to be a kingdom, to be priests unto his God and Father; - to him be the glory and the dominion for ever and ever. Amen. - Revelation 1:5-6
You have loosened me up from every negative feeling I might have about myself because of my sins and failures. You have restored to me my own personal identity that I am part of your kingdom as a royal member of your family and a priest that represents you in the world. You have made all of my Christian family and friends into the same new creation. Help me to live in the optimism that remembering I am your chosen royalty brings. Help me also to view all my fellow Christians as the same loyal citizens treating them with dignity and respect. And since you rose from the dead I live in the hope that I too will beat whatever it is that threatens my life now and always.
