A Collect to Look to Jesus for Righteousness

Lord Jesus, heir of the throne of Judah and of all creation, call us to look to you for our righteousness, and may we seek out the justice that you desire rather, that we would not fall into the trap of manufacturing our own and thereby stumble but would trust in your ways and the real life that you bring, through you who reigns as a servant in the presence of the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘In his days Judah will be saved and Israel will live in safety. And this is the name by which he will be called: “The LORD is our righteousness.”‘ – Jeremiah 23:6
