Christ, Whose Glory Fills The Skies
Christ, whose glory fills the skies, Christ, the true, the only light, Sun of Righteousness, arise, triumph o'er the shades of night; Dayspring from on high, be near; Daystar, in my heart appear.
Dark and cheerless is the morn unaccompanied by thee; joyless is the day's return, till thy mercy's beams I see; till they inward light impart, cheer my eyes and warm my heart.
Visit then this soul of mine; pierce the gloom of sin and grief; fill me, Radiancy divine, scatter all my unbelief; more and more thyself display, shining to the perfect day.
Written by Charles Wesley, 1740.
If you like the music from the video above check out the entire album from Pilgrim, it's quickly become one of my favorites.
Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart;do not depend on your own understanding.
Whoever speaks, [speak] as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, [serve] as one who serves by the strength that God supplies — in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the Spirit.
What instruction did Luther give to Christians on how to bear witness to Christ?
If he is in a place where there are no Christians he needs no other call than to be a Christian… Here it is his duty to preach and to teach the gospel to non-Christians, because of the duty of brotherly love, even though no man calls him to do so.
Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind.
