Today’s Scripture:

2 Corinthians 4:3-6

And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. For we do not proclaim ourselves; we proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord and ourselves as your slaves for Jesus’ sake. For it is the God who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

Food For Thought:

This is an interesting passage of Scripture. In it, the apostle Paul talks about the role of the Christian. He reminds the church at Corinth that they are supposed to be proclaiming God rather than themselves. We humans are very good at boasting about ourselves and not boasting about how amazing God is. I want you to think about something amazing that God has done in your life and share that story with others.

Prayer:

Righteous God,

in humility and repentance

we bring our failures in caring, helping, and loving,

we bring the pain we have caused other,

we bring the injustice in society of which we are a part,

to the transforming power of your grace.

Grant us the courage to accept the healing you offer

and to turn again toward the sunrise of your reign,

that we may walk with you in the promise of peace

you have willed for all the children of the earth,

and have made known to us in Christ Jesus. Amen.
