Hallelujah, praise the living God for another day to pray for you all and be used by Him. Today I offer these lines from Christopher J.H. Wright.
“Switching on the light in a dark place is not snobbish. It’s common sense. God created Israel to be a light in a dark world.”
Luke 12:3 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
3 Accordingly, whatever you have said in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in the inner rooms will be proclaimed upon the housetops.
Abba, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises You. Thank You for switching on the light in our hearts. Help us to shine before men in a way that glorifies You. Let our speech always be with grace as we share what You have revealed to us. Control our unruly tongues and bring them into submission. Let no corrupting talk come out of our mouths, but only such words of truth that are good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear. Your servant confesses to a bitterness and pride that is in need of Your healing touch. Allow Your word to be seared into this heart to produce life and love that will overpower the sin and the flesh which lead only to death. In Jesus’ name, amen.
