All have sinned and fall short of your glory (Romans 3:23). There is no one righteous, no one who understands, no one who seeks you (3:10-11). We all, like sheep, have gone astray, turning to our own way, worshiping gods of our own making (Isaiah 53:6). And yet you have loved us, even while we were still sinners, sending Christ to die for us (Romans 5:8). On him—and not on us—have you laid the iniquity of us all (Isaiah 53:6). The world is in desperate need of this news. Everyone who calls on your name will be saved (Joel 2:32), but they cannot call on a name they have not heard. How will they hear unless we preach the gospel to them (Romans 10:14)? Make us and our children willing stewards of this precious truth. In the fear of the Lord, compelled by the love of Jesus, conscious of our responsibility as ambassadors of Christ and ministers of reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5:11-21), may our child proclaim your word boldly, lovingly, and unceasingly. May many come to know you by his/her words and deeds, as they see the cross stamped on his/her life and proclamation. Your gospel is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes; let not our child ever be ashamed of it (Romans 1:16).
