A Collect for Gratitude for Jesus’ Love

Good Shepherd, who laid down your life for our sake, instill in us great awe and gratitude for your love and sacrifice on our behalf, that we would ceaselessly praise you and live our lives worthy of your goodness, following in your footsteps and loving your children even to the end, through you who was raised to life and lifted up into the presence of the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.” – John 10:11
