Thursday, December 3

Opening Prayer: Almighty God, thank you for the many gifts You have given me. Help me to better understand the gift of Your grace in this time. Amen.

Read: Ephesians 4:17-5:21
Reflect: In what ways should believers expect to become like Christ? What will it look like to be wise as Paul tells us to be wise? How will imitating Christ help us to be subject to one another?

Prayer: for the church, for others, for myself.

Hymn: “Fairest Lord Jesus”
Fairest Lord Jesus!
Ruler of all nature!
O Thou of God and man the Son!
Thee will I cherish;
The will I honor,
Thou, my soul’s glory, joy, and crown!

Fair are the meadow;
Fairer still the woodlands,
Roved in the blooming garb of spring.
Jesus is fairer;
Jesus is purer,
Who makes the woeful heart to sing!

Fair is the sunshine;
Fairer still the moonlight,
And all the twinkling starry hosts.
Jesus shines brighter;
Jesus shines purer
Than all the angels heaven can boast!

Beautiful Savior!
Lord of all the nations!
Son of God and Son of man!
Flory and honor,
Praise, adoration,
Now and forevermore be Thine!

Closing Prayer: Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Amen and Amen (Psalm 72:18-19)
