Leviticus 4:1-5:19; Mark 2:13-3:6; Psalm 36:1-12; Proverbs 10:1-2
“An oracle is within my heart concerning the sinfulness of the wicked:
There is no fear of God
before his eyes.
For in his own eyes he flatters himself
too much to detect or hate his sin.
The words of his mouth are wicked
he has ceased to be wise and to
Even on his bed he plots evil;
he commits himself to a sinful course
and does not reject what is wrong.

Your love, O Lord, reaches to the heavens,
your faithfulness to the skies.
Your righteousness is like the mighty
your justice like the great deep.
O Lord, you preserve both man
How priceless is your unfailing love!
Both high and low among men
find refuge in the shadow of
They feast on the abundance
of your house;
you give them drink from your
river of delights.
For with you is the fountain of life;
in your light we see light.”

Lord God, if it weren’t for your Spirit living in me, I could very well be given over to wickedness. I could be in darkness. I could be flattering myself with all kinds of lies and heading straight to everlasting separation from you. But you sent your Son–for me–and for all people–to defeat the powers of darkness: sin, death and the devil. Thank you for His redeeming work on the Cross, for splitting the wall of separation between us and you. In Jesus’ name we give you thanks and praise! Amen.
