Almighty God,
you have taught us through your Son
that love fulfils the law.
Grant us grace to love you
with all our heart,

all our mind,
all our strength,
and to love our neighbour as ourselves;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns
with you and the Holy Spirit, one God,
now and for ever.

So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, 
for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.  
There is neither Jew nor Gentile, 
neither slave nor free,

If you belong to Christ, 
then you are Abraham’s seed,

who lives and reigns
with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,  through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God.  Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.  And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.

Psalm- Psalm 8

Almighty and eternal God,
through your Word and Spirit
you created all things.
In Jesus Christ, the Word made flesh,
you reveal your salvation
in all the world.
Through your Holy Spirit,
you give us a share
in your life and love.
Keep us firm in this faith,
and fill us with the vision of your glory,
that we may serve and praise you all our days;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who is alive and reigns
with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.
