Occasionally, we will reprint prior devotions that now reflect on the coming lectionary texts. This is a reprint from a devotion originally published on November 5, 2013.
Prayer: We are eternally grateful, O Lord, for the gift you give us in light. Help us be that light as we walk with Christ. Amen.
Reading: Ephesians 5: 8-14 (Click to read text)
Stop and GROW: After reading the text, discuss/ponder the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America's Book of Faith questions, which are part of Camp Mount Luther's GROW Time with campers.
QUESTION 1: What scares, confuses, challenges, or doesn’t make sense to me in this text?
QUESTION 2: What delights me in this text or is my favorite part of the story?
QUESTION 3: What stories or memories does this text stir in me?
QUESTION 4: What is God up to in this text?
Reflection: As Christians, we need to stay in Christ's light and let our light shine before others. God created the light and led by light and is the light of life. We need to stay in God's light and be a light to our fellow man, spreading the Word of God. Sometimes it may be hard, but it is an important task that we should all take seriously. Stay in the light! --Chad Hershberger
