Your Light has Come

Arise, shine, for your light has come:
and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.
Behold darkness covers the earth:
and thick darkness is over the peoples.
But upon you the Lord shall rise:
and the glory of the Lord will appear upon you.

New Testament Reading - Paul’s Vision of the Man of Macedonia

thumb

6Next they traveled through Phrygia and Galatia because the Holy Spirit had told them not to go into the Turkish province of Asia Minor at that time. 7Then going along the borders of Mysia they headed north for the province of Bithynia, but again the Spirit of Jesus said no. 8So instead they went on through Mysia province to the city of Troas.

9That nighta Paul had a vision. In his dream he saw a man over in Macedonia, Greece, pleading with him, “Come over here and help us.” 10Well, that settled it. Web would go to Macedonia, for we could only conclude that God was sending us to preach the Good News there.

. . . . . Acts 16:6-10
  1. Literally, “In the night.”
  2. Luke, the writer of this book, now joined Paul and accompanied him on his journey.

Behold, my servant, whom I uphold,*
my chosen, in whom my soul delights;
the anointed one on whom my Spirit rests.
