Paths of Righteousness!
Scripture reading for August 29th: Ephesians 5, Psalm 23, Proverbs 19
Key Scriptures: Ephesians 5:8-11 ” . . for at one time you were darkness, but now your are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord. Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.”
All believers were once sinners, walking in darkness and doing deeds of those who live in darkness and ignorance of God’s will. But now believers have been made “children of light” and are called to walk in the light of God’s Word and life. We are to study God’s Word to find out what pleases Him and do that. We are to expose the darkness by letting our light shine brighter each day as we follow our Good Shepherd in His paths of righteousness.
Faith Confession: I am light in the world because Christ lives in me. As I walk in the light of Christ’s love and Word, I please God and expose the fruitless deeds of darkness that I once lived in.
Psalm 23:1-3 “The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for His Name’s sake.”
