Thoughts on Today's Verse...

We've been picked to be on God's team and we were picked first! We have an important role to play in the unfolding of the world's history. We're here to declare God's praises to those who don't know him, so they can find his marvelous light and leave their world of darkness.

My Prayer...

O Great Light of Eternal Hope, I praise you and thank you for including me in your people. Now please move me and empower me to share your Gospel with others so the world might truly know that Jesus is Lord. In the name of my Savior, Jesus, I pray. Amen.
