12:01 am

Scripture reading

I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.
–Ephesians 3:16-17

Thought of the Day

Even though I am a little tired today, it was totally worth it. I didn’t get all of my beauty sleep last night because I hung out with about twenty of our college gang from the church. Actually we hung out with a few thousand others as we stood in line for over an hour so we could go to the 12:01 am showing of the new STAR WARS movie. It is a great movie. You don’t have to be a Star Wars nerd to enjoy it. Even though, my son Parker, the Jedi Warrior, (trust me, his words not mine) loved it.)
Now I thought about trying to find great symbolism of faith between good and evil and even toyed with the idea of writing about the Jedi- Code of Ethics and the force being with you and everything, but I realized that might be silly. So forget all of that and re-read our scripture for today about five times. I am going to do it too. Maybe then we will begin to better understand God’s mighty power and how He cares enough for each one of us to use it to strengthen our very beings.

Prayer

God, You fill me with your power and spirit. Thank you for that gift. Amen.
