Your Light has Come

Nations will come to your light:
and kings to the brightness of your rising.
No longer will violence be heard in your land:
nor ruin or destruction within your borders.
But you will call your walls ‘Salvation’:
and all your gates ‘Praise’.

New Testament Reading - Pure and faultless religion


22And remember, it is a message to obey, not just to listen to. So don’t fool yourselves. 23 For if a person just listens and doesn’t obey, he is like a man looking at his face in a mirror; 24as soon as he walks away, he can’t see himself anymore or remember what he looks like. 25But if anyone keeps looking steadily into God’s law for free men, he will not only remember it but he will do what it says, and God will greatly bless him in everything he does.

26Anyone who says he is a Christian but doesn’t control his sharp tongue is just fooling himself, and his religion isn’t worth much. 27The Christian who is pure and without fault, from God the Father’s point of view, is the one who takes care of orphans and widows, and who remains true to the Lord — not soiled and dirtied by his contacts with the world.

. . . . .James 1:22-27
