Friday, May 5 — Psalm 58
Job 40; 1 Corinthians 10:23–11:2
I will remove the guilt of this land in a single day. Zechariah 3:9
Jesus Christ is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world. 1 John 2:2
Lord, when we practice the two greatest commandments you taught us—to love you first as our God and savior, and to love others as we love ourselves—our souls are filled with light. May we keep the fire burning as we fix our eyes on you. Help us be the hands and feet, to offer a drink of water to the thirsty and take care of those who are sick. Give us the strength to be your body in the world. In your name, O Lord, we pray. Amen.
