Hebrews 10:39 – But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who have faith and preserve their souls.
Lord God, keep me from losing confidence in your gospel. Keep me from losing confidence in its power to save me and to save other people. Set me on fire to preach it, to teach it, and to make it known. Let this gospel set your people on fire by the gospel and for the gospel. Do your work in me by your gospel so that I am set on fire and set free to live for you. Fill me up! Stir in me a gospel centered, Christ centered, Spirit powered confidence. Inspire me to use that gospel freely and liberally, reckless and frequently, even lavishly. It is the one thing that has the power to save me and convert everyone else. Amen.
