Lord, we can have such hard and unbelieving hearts. We want to see and savor Jesus more than anything in this world. So, thank you Lord for your word that is alive and that pierces to our innermost being and reveals what's there. Lord, help us come to your word and respond to your word together as a blood-bought family to hold fast to Jesus.
