Mark 8:22-26


Call to Worship: Psalm 27: 4, 7-8 (ESV)


     One thing have I asked of the Lord,
              that will I seek after:
        that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
              all the days of my life,
        to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord
              and to inquire in his temple.


     Hear, O Lord, when I cry aloud;
              be gracious to me and answer me!
     You have said, “Seek my face.”
              My heart says to you,
        “Your face, Lord, do I seek.”

Scripture Reading: 2 Cor 4:3-4, 6 (NLT)

If the Good News we preach is hidden behind a veil, it is hidden only from people who are perishing. Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.

For God, who said, “Let there be light in the darkness,” has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ.
