The title of the lesson is
“What Does Christ Desire for
Us?” When we behold the great
work of salvation Which he per
formed on the cross, we realize
that he desires for us all the
blessings that God has to offer.
Let us, therefore, pray for help
to realize more fully the great
love that Jesus Christ has for
all men. Let us pray for the
insight to comprehend more
clearly the meaning of his cru
cifixion and the way in which
it glorified God’s name. And let
us nray also for understanding
and the spiritual power so ne
cessary to perform the task
Jesus desired us to do in the
name of Christian fellowship.
