“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Colossians 3:16

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Christ’s message in all its richness must live in your hearts.

Teach and instruct one another with all wisdom.

Sing psalms, hymns, and sacred songs;

sing to God with thanksgiving in your hearts.

.

– Colossians 3:16 (GNT)

.

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

Christ’s message should be ever-present to the Christian’s soul

and dwell abundantly in the heart,

imbuing everything the believer does.

.

The word of Christ is the best nourishment of one’s life of prayer

and an inexhaustible source of practical teaching;

and it is to be found, in the first instance, in the books of the New Testament.

.

St John Chrysostom says that these writings

"are teachers which never cease to instruct us […].

Open these books. What a treasury of good remedies they contain! […]

All you need do is look at the book, read it

and remember well the wise teachings therein.

The source of all our evils is our ignorance of the sacred books"

.

Once we read these sacred books

we will be filled with appreciation

and that should lead us to thank the Lord with all our hearts

and glorify Him with songs of joy and gratitude.

.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

Jesus, my Lord and my God,

Your word is a lamp to my feet

and a light for my path!

.

Thank You for living the scriptures for me,

and for being my Teacher and Mentor.

.

Thank You for the Holy Spirit

who brings Your words to life in my heart

– words of wisdom that reinforce my faith

and fill me with great hope;

words that revive my tired soul

which then sings out with great joy

as You come alive within me.

.

All glory be to You, my King and Saviour!

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

All glory be to You, my Teacher and Mentor;

my King and my Saviour!

.

  1. I seek for thee this day, that You might become real to me oh Lord. I have for so long wanted to know, the unknown; see the unseen; hear the unheard. Today I will look for You, listen for You, that I might know You…Love You.
