A Collect to Turn to the Lord for True Life
Good Teacher, who knows what is in our hearts, our hearts speak to us that following the rules and being good is not enough to find true life and fulfillment. Help us to be humble and to come to you for our life, for only through you will we discover life eternal and full, through you who reigns with the Father and Holy Spirit in glory forever. Amen.
'As he was setting out on a journey, a man ran up and knelt before him, and asked him, "Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?" Jesus said to him, "Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone. You know the commandments: 'You shall not murder; You shall not commit adultery; You shall not steal; You shall not bear false witness; You shall not defraud; Honor your father and mother.'"' - Mark 10:17-19
