And this is the confidence that we have before him: that whenever we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in regard to whatever we ask, then we know that we have the requests that we have asked from him.

Kindness

Father, I was once foolish, disobedient, misled, enslaved to various passions and desires, spending my life in evil and envy, hateful and hating others. But when your kindness and love for mankind appeared, you saved me, not by works of righteousness that I have done, but on the basis of your mercy, through the washing of the new birth and the renewing of the Holy Spirit, whom you poured out on me in full measure through Jesus Christ my Savior. For this very reason, I will make every effort to add to my faith excellence, to excellence, knowledge; to knowledge, self-control; to self-control, perseverance; to perseverance, godliness; to godliness, brotherly affection; to brotherly affection, unselfish love. In the power of the Son I lift these words to the throne, Amen.

Chris,
Even when I fall short of the person Jesus wants me to be, I am so greatful he still loves me. With that I can continue to be who he wants me to be.
