For the Lord is righteous;
he loves righteous deeds;
the upright shall behold his face. (Psalm 11:7)

If we were left to ourselves, these words would devastate us.  You are righteous, You love righteous deeds, and those who walk uprightly will behold Your face in glory.  Yet due to our innate corruption, we are not righteous.  No one is righteous, not even one.  Our deeds are all stained with sin, and so we ought to have no hope of beholding You face to face.  And so we give You thanks today, Father, for sending Your Son to redeem us from our lawlessness, and to purify for Yourself a people of Your own possession who are zealous for good deeds.  Help us to bear fruit in keeping with repentance.  As You have credited the righteousness of Your Son to our account by faith, help us now to clothe ourselves in garments that our fitting of those who truly who have the hope of seeing Your face.  Grant us to live a life worthy of the glorious calling we have received.
