Psalm 1 The Message

How well God must like you- you don’t hang out at Sin Saloon, you don’t slink along Dead-End Road,
  you don’t go to Smart-Mouth College.

Instead you thrill to God’s Word,
    you chew on Scripture day and night.
  You’re a tree replanted in Eden,
    bearing fresh fruit every month,
  Never dropping a leaf,
    always in blossom.
You’re not at all like the wicked,
    who are mere windblown dust-
  Without defense in court,
    unfit company for innocent people.

God charts the road you take.
  The road they take is Skid Row.


Midday Prayer

Eternal God,
you have called us to be members of one body.

Join us with those
who in all times and places have praised your name,
that, with one heart and mind,
we may show the unity of your church,
and bring honor to our Lord and Savior,
Jesus Christ.


John 1:1-5 NIV

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.

Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.


Galatians 1:3-5 NIV

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
