Be filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God
Dear Lord, thank you for imputing me with Christ’s righteousness as a free gift of grace. I now offer myself to You. Use me as You will I pray.. so that throughout my life the fruit of Christ’s righteousness will grow and produce fruit in me.. much fruit- and even more fruit, to Your praise and glory, in Jesus name I pray.. AMEN
It is true that some preach Christ out of envy and rivalry, but others out of goodwill. The latter do so out of love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel. The former preach Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing that they can stir up trouble for me while I am in chains. But what does it matter? The important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached. And because of this I rejoice.
