I have been working on school work off and on all day, and have been able to get a lot done. Tomorrow we play Tarsus at 6:00 p.m. (11:00 a.m. EST). I will let you know how we do.
I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.— John 12:46 (NIV)
Thoughts on Today's Verse...One of the great stories in the Gospel of John is Nicodemus. He came to Jesus at night and Jesus told him that those who love the truth come to the light. Later, Nicodemus spoke up for Jesus even though he was ridiculed for it. Then, at the worst possible time politically and religiously, he showed himself as Jesus' disciple: he took the broken and dead body of Jesus and helped Joseph of Arimathea place him in a tomb. Nicodemus didn't stay in the darkness. Neither should we. Jesus is the light of the world; if our light cannot be found in him, how deep is our darkness!
My Utmost For His Highest:
Do you find yourself thinking that there is no one interceding properly? Then be that person yourself. Be a person who worships God and lives in a holy relationship with Him. Get involved in the real work of intercession, remembering that it truly is work-work that demands all your energy, but work which has no hidden pitfalls. Preaching the gospel has its share of pitfalls, but intercessory prayer has none whatsoever.

We can’t undo yesterday, but we can act today to influence tomorrow.
