Thoughts on Today's Verse...

We are chosen as a people with a purpose and for a mission. We are brought out of the darkness of sin and given the marvelous light of salvation to help others find his wonderful light of salvation. You see, we are blessed to be a blessing and given light to shine to help others find their way out of their darkness. We are called to point others to the one, true, never-interrupted Light — the Almighty God as Father, Son, and Spirit!

My Prayer...

Most holy and loving Father, thank you for giving me your light to push darkness out of my heart and life. Stir in me a profound and holy awe at being made part of your special people — a priest, a part of your holy nation, a child belonging to you. Your grace to save me is further demonstrated in your desire to use me for your glorious purposes to bless others. Thank you for your salvation. In the name of my Savior, Jesus, I pray. Amen.
