“I am the Lord God.
I created the heavens like an open tent above.
I made the earth and everything that grows on it.
I am the source of life for all who live on this earth,
So—listen to what I say.
I chose you to bring justice, and I am here at your side.
I selected you and sent you to bring light
and my promise of hope to the nations.”
-Isaiah 42:5-6 [CEV]

A Time to Think… “We who are the inheritors of the gospel of grace are called to bring recovery of sight to the blind and proclaim release to captives. We’ve not been set aside so that we can go to heaven when we die, we are sent to work for justice and peace in all the earth.” ―Pastor Steve Holm 

A Time to Act… What an inheritance we have and we should do well to celebrate that every day and then declare it to others. To live daily in the gospel of God’s grace is to live our lives to the fullest, with joy and hope, and the knowledge of being led by the wisdom of God. 

A Time to Pray… O Trinity of truth, wisdom, power, and redemption, give me the joy in my heart to celebrate the life you have given me. Instill the wisdom I need to live in this world and the empathy for others who are struggling. Your Word says you sent me to bring light, may I shine it always so that those in the dark can find the light to live and thrive. O Lord, hear my prayer, for it is only in your strength I can do this, AMEN.
