On this day to remember the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr., we ask you to consider pausing and personally reflecting on your life in the spirit of MLK Jr. – start by reading Psalm 139 and then ponder these queries from yesterday’s sermon, “Is Your Heart Right?”:
Lord, do you really know everything about me –
everything in the depths of my heart?
Lord, is there anywhere that I could go or anything that I could do that would cause You not to embrace me or want to guide me?
Lord, did you really know me before I was formed in my mother’s womb?
Lord, why do I not always delight in my knowledge of you?
Lord, why am I not always willing to give you my complete loyalty? Why do I lack the will to banish my wickedness, so You can live in my heart?
Lord, will you turn your searchlight on my heart?
