Atonement In Jesus

"The Spirit is willing but the flesh is weak."  Mark 14:38b

Dear Lord,
Our nation is lost in secularization. We are consumed with consumption. We are motivated with excess. We are overcome with too much technology while always looking for more. In our quest for improvement nothing is satisfactory. Materialism is necessary for us to live in a material world so help us to manage it in such a way that it does not ensnare us. May we find our fulfillment not in fashion but in faith, not in style but in substance, not in appearance but in aptitude, not in our image but in the image of Jesus. Forgive us for not putting our trust in you before all else. Strengthen our spiritual muscles to lift the burden that you have for our contentment. 
We pray this in your name Lord.

  "My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One.  He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world."    1 John 2:1,2

God is blessing you.  He loves you and so do I.
