Take a few minutes to praise and worship Christ as your Lord and Savior, acknowledging who He is and thanking Him for everything He has done and continues to do for you.

[Read Mark 4-6]

Mark 4:21 Then Jesus asked them, “Would anyone light a lamp and then put it under a basket or under a bed? Of course not! A lamp is placed on a stand, where its light will shine.”

Emmanuel, Christ, my Lord,
How I praise You for who You are.  I praise You for coming to earth to dwell among men in order to save me.  I don’t understand the reasons You have for choosing to live inside of me, but I am glad You did.  I enjoy Your presence and Your fellowship.  Shine in me and through me to reveal Your light to those who live in darkness.  Guide my feet in the ways of peace. Amen.
