Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
Jeremiah 26: 11-24
The history of the church is filled with stories like those of Jeremiah and John the Baptist and Jesus, of individuals who chose to unswervingly bear witness to the truth and love of God. Fort the most part, all true heroes of human history were individuals of such courageous integrity, most of whom were very verbal about their firm faith in God. Do I align my life, and my words, with this company of saints ... in my home, my work, in the market place? Am I courageous enough to say with Jeremiah, “But as for me, here I am in your hands. Do with me as seems good and right to you...for in truth the Lord sent me to you to speak all these words in your ears.”? Holy Spirit of God, help me speak your word without compromise.
Rescue me from sinking in the mire. (Psalm 69: 1-2)
Proclaim the Gospel at all times; use words only when necessary.
