“The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.” Psalm 119:130
Lord as we pursue you in your words this morning we desire to bask in its light. The truth of who you are and how you have worked for your own glory to reconcile us to you through Christ. As pastors across the globe open scripture might they avoid talking of things other than you. Help us to become a people who have a passion for the work and reality of Jesus above all things. Holy Spirit as we venture to unfold scripture illuminate the truth and help us to see Christ on each page, in each story and in each command. Let us be a people empowered for ministry and new life.
As we respond to the amazing work of Christ, our atoning blood, let us live well. Differently then those around us. With love, passion, holiness. Set apart for you even as we are in the midst of our culture and communities. Be glorified in how we exist for the rest of the week, dwelling on the simple truth and light of your word.
