Thursday: Third Week in Ordinary Time

Today's Readings: Hebrews 10:19-25, Psalm 24:1-6, Mark 4:21-25

Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord?
Who may stand in His holy place?
The one who has clean hands and a pure hears,
who has not set his mind on what is false,
and who has not sworn deceitfully. (Psa. 24:3-4)

...We have boldness to enter the sanctuary through the blood of Jesus. (Heb. 10:19)

...Is a lamp brought in to be put under a basket or under a bed? Isn't it to be put on a lampstand? (Mark 4:21)

Lord God, I approach You not because of any merit of my own, but only through the blood of Your Son. Remind me that I am welcome to come, with no need for timidity. Give me boldness to shine Your light to the world around me.
