Regarding Myrrh -- More Myrrh!
Based on Isaiah 35 and 2 Corinthians 4 and 14.
Thank You, LORD, for the encouragement from Isaiah that the redeemed will be spared the coming agonies, for You, LORD, have paid the ransom for human sin and have paved a highway for those who belong to You. Great is our gratitude for Life in You and for the assurance that, therefore, all is good and well and right, and we fear not. Instead we focus on You, the Lamb Who Was Slain and Rose to Reign. And we intercede for those many beloveds whom we know and love that know You not, and we place our burdens, like heaps of myrrh, before You, Father, and by Your Holy Spirit -- in Christ both now and forever. Amen.
