16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see, and your ears, for they hear. 17 For truly, I say to you, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it. (Matthew 13:16-17)

Grant us this day, O God, to have gratitude for the amazing privilege that we have of having seen the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ.  Many prophets and righteous people longed to see what has now been revealed to us by Your Spirit.  Noah, Abraham, Jacob, Moses, Elijah, David, Isaiah, and so many others longed to see the coming of the Redeemer.  Yet they all perished before He entered this world of sin and darkness.  But through the eyes of faith, we have seen Christ.  Though we do not see Him now, help us to rejoice in Him with joy that is inexpressible and full of glory (1 Peter 1:8).  Help us to taste what a marvelous gift we have in living after the time of the coming of Christ, where Your love for sinful people like us has been most vividly demonstrated.  And help us to live lives that are worthy of the high calling that we have received.
