1 John 4:14 Moreover, we have seen and testify that the Father sent his Son as savior of the world.
“My child, does the blood of witnesses count for nothing in this generation? Even the witness who testifies to the truth with his blood is mocked by this generation. Then do not be surprised if you are treated in the same way. Be assured that I am with you through it all. And may the Spirit of Truth guide you to all truth, so that you too may testify to the truth of Jesus Christ come in the flesh for the sake of sinners. Do you think that the Father sent his Son to suffer and die for sinners without a great expectation of harvest? Did he not expect that the seed sown on Calvary and watered with the blood and living water that flowed from his side would yield a rich harvest of souls? You cannot imagine the true cost and you cannot imagine the depth of mercy. My beloved, trust in the mercy of the Triune God and be at peace.”
Jesus, Lord of mercy I place all souls in your pierced heart. Father I thank you for all you have done, for your unimaginable gift of Jesus to the world. For the sake of his sorrowful passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world. Amen.
