A Collect to Live Christ’s Way from the Heart

Lord Jesus, who gave yourself for our freedom, teach us to obey the Father’s commands from the heart, that we would live according to your ways not begrudgingly but with joy, trusting that your ways are those that are most fitting for our souls and joyous to all your creation, through you who is alive and reigns in glory with the Father and Holy Spirit forever. Amen. ‘But thanks be to God that you, having once been slaves of sin, have become obedient from the heart to the form of teaching to which you were entrusted.’ – Rom. 6:17
