A Collect for Dissatisfaction with Mere Status

Almighty God, judge of all people, do not let us trust in belonging to the right tribe or belief, but give us hearts that are satisfied in bearing the fruit of your kingdom, that we would be true servants and members of your household, through Jesus Christ our Lord, the firstborn of creation and king with you in the Holy Spirit. Amen. “Bear fruits worthy of repentance. Do not begin to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our ancestor’; for I tell you, God is able from these stones to raise up children to Abraham.” – John 3:8
