A Collect to Live Up to Christ’s Trust

Lord of Heaven and Earth, whose majesty fills all creation, we are honored that you would call us friends and entrust us with all that the Father has given you. Let us live up to the wisdom you have given, that our lives would be characterized by sacrifice and humility and would fulfill your ministry of reconciliation to all the world, through you who reigns with the Father and Holy Spirit, one God. Amen. ‘I do not call you servants any longer, because the servant does not know what the master is doing; but I have called you friends, because I have made known to you everything that I have heard from my Father.’ – John 15:15
