A Collect to Live Worthy of the Gospel

Lord Jesus, who showed us a life without fault or sin, help us to live in a way worthy of your gospel, that even though you are absent in body, the world might see a people striving to do good and focused on love, justice, and humility, through you who lives and reigns with Father and Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen. ‘Only, live your life in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that, whether I come and see you or am absent and hear about you, I will know that you are standing firm in one spirit, striving side by side with one mind for the faith of the gospel.’ – Phil. 1:27
