I live such a safe life and I'm thankful for that, Father, but I pray that you'd put me in risky situations in which I can glorify you, through which I can "leaven the whole lump [of dough] through my life lived in the midst of adversity." I want to be able to show your glory to the hopeless, to the distraught, to the mourning. Only you can save, only you can satisfy.
But God showed His love for us
in that while we were still sinners,
Christ died for us.
