Welcome to The Light Bible Reading Challenge week 2 summary! It’s Friday and our weekly check-in day to cheer each other on. I’m looking forward to hearing what you’ve been learning. Let’s take a peek at the summaries for the week.
The last two verses of this passage became my focus as I read.
Then Jesus told them, “You are going to have the light just a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, before darkness overtakes you. Whoever walks in the dark does not know where they are going. Believe in the light while you have the light, so that you may become children of light.”
So that everyone who believes in me would not remain in darkness. The reason the baby was born in Bethlehem and the reason we celebrate the Light this season.
“Lord, give me life through your word.” And so the word provides both light and life. Amen.
Thank you Lord, for keeping our feet steady and for giving us light for the path of life. We ask you to walk with us today. Guide us and lead us in your mercy and grace. Amen.
For you delivered me from death, even my feet from stumbling, to walk before God in the light of life.
Light dawns for the righteous, gladness for the upright in heart. Be glad I Yahweh, you righteous ones, and praise his holy name. Psalm 97:1-12 for #thelight#biblereading The Light gives us reason to rejoice. Count your blessings as you go throughout your day today!
Need a little light and gladness? Try a spiritual heart checkup! Has anything been planted that shouldn’t be there? Something taken root that needs pulled out?
That darkness so deep you can feel it surrounding you? No match for the God of heaven.. You see, when things seem out of control, God is always in control. And when you think you’ll never see the light, he is there, ready to shine beyond belief. “Wisdom and strength belong to God; counsel and understanding are his. Whatever he tears down cannot be rebuilt; whoever he imprisons cannot be released…. He reveals mysteries from the darkness and brings the deepest darkness into the light. “
When we read the Word and soak it up, a light burns into our souls. We soon realize how much better it is than shiny silver or flashy gold and before you know it, the fire that burns within us shines brightly. Our eyes light with grace and truth that no one can hold a candle to.
That wraps it up, friends! Keep going; I know the bustle of the season tempts us not to focus on what is most important.
Have a fabulous Friday!
By his grace,
