Dear Blessed Lord Jesus, good morning. I love You, thank You, praise You and give You all the honor and glory for this new day. I thank You and praise You for the many lessons I can learn from the Word of Truth, and I thank You and praise You for Your many mentors who teach and encourage. I believe that as I journey through life, I will not miss any precious encounters with Jesus Christ along the way. I thank You and praise You that You let me use my talents You have given me as a gift. Help me to do all things to Your praise and glory, that is a gift to me. I thank You, praise You and give You all the glory in Your Precious Name Amen.
So, the Jewish leaders said to the man who had been healed, “It is the Sabbath; the law forbids you to carry your mat.” But he replied, “The man who made me well said to me, ‘Pick up your mat and walk.’” So, they asked him, “Who is this fellow who told you to pick it up and walk?” The man who was healed had no idea who it was, for Jesus had slipped away into the crowd that was there.
