Jesus Christ and him Crucified - 1 Corinthians 2:2

Father of Jesus,
We commit to your son,
To his deity, his humanity and his Lordship over us.
We declare he is the anointed, Messiah king,
Promised by the prophets,
Ruler of heaven and earth.
We submit ourselves to him.
We desire to love him.
We embrace his crucifixion.
We declare he died for us,
It was our sin that placed him on the cross.
That cross is our beacon of hope,
   Our lighthouse for direction,
   Our only hope of mercy,
   Our confidence in our brokenness,
   The goal for our hearts,
And the rule for our lives.
May we bear it,
   Live it,
   Love it,
   Proclaim it,
   Be moulded by it,
And trust the one who died on it.
