The first part of the Gospel Prayer reflects on our assurance of God’s acceptance of us in Christ. The second part of the prayer moves us to reflect on how great a treasure that acceptance is. How important is God’s approval in your life? It is one thing to know that God has accepted you fully in Christ; it is another thing for that to become the weightiest and most defining reality in your life.
