Light for My Path Daily Devotion
But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: For the Lord, one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like one day. The Lord is not slow to do what he promised, as some consider slowness. Instead, he is patient for your sakes, not wanting anyone to perish, but all to come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:8-9 EHV)
Hymn ELH 198: 1,5,6 O Christ, Our True and Only Light
O Christ, our true and only Light,
Enlighten those who sit in night;
Let those afar now hear Thy voice
And in Thy fold with us rejoice.
Shine on the darkened and the cold;
Recall the wanderers to Thy fold.
Unite all those who walk apart;
Confirm the weak and doubting heart.
So they with us may evermore
Such grace with wondering thanks adore
And endless praise to Thee be given
By all Thy Church in earth and heaven.
Gracious Father, thank you for the opportunities You daily give all people to know Your Word and believe in Christ as their only Savior. Help me to use the time of grace you have given to me wisely, living my life as a faithful witness to Your grace. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
