Psalm 56:1–8; Leviticus 22:17–23:22; Mark 7:9–23

The Lord says, “I will not continually accuse, nor will I always be angry.” Isaiah 57:16

God saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works but according to his own purpose and grace. This grace was given to us in Christ Jesus. 2 Timothy 1:9

Savior, your grace sustains and surprises us! You give us this gift freely, no strings attached. As a result, we feel your calling on our hearts—to follow where you lead—to serve. Thanks be to God! Amen.
