A disciple came to his guru and asked, “Master, is there anything I can do to make myself enlightened?” The Master responded wisely, “Do as little as you can to make the sun rise in the morning.” The restless disciple continued, “But Master, of what use then are the spiritual exercises you prescribe?” The Master answered, “To make sure you are not asleep when the sun rises.”

Dear Brother and Sister in Christ read God’s Word, spend some time in prayer and service so we might, “Awake…, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” Shout with me, O Lord, let my soul rise up to meet you as the day rises to meet the sun. Come, let us sing to the LORD: let us shout for joy to the Rock of our salvation. Today is going to be a great day why don’t you sing!!
