Stained glass at St John the Baptist’s Anglican Church http://www.stjohnsashfield.org.au, Ashfield, New South Wales. Illustrates Jesus’ description of himself “I am the Good Shepherd” (from the Gospel of John, chapter 10, verse 11). This version of the image shows the detail of his face. The memorial window is also captioned: “To the Glory of God and in Loving Memory of William Wright. Died 6th November, 1932. Aged 70 Yrs.” (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Colossians 1:11 Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; kjv        

Colossians 3:22 Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as men pleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God:
23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;
24 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance:  for ye serve the Lord Christ.
25 But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons. kjv

Jesus as your servant I pray that I will be obedient and pleasing to you.  For those I serve in this world please teach me to be obedient, but not just to please men doing good things when they are watching, but evil when they are not looking.  I want to be simple and with a single purpose in your sight.  I want to bring Jesus to a lost and dying world.  Please give me this mission deep in my heart with singleness.  I know that our Lord God is Holy and pure, so I need His light to shine in me, otherwise I am just the same as the next person.
