Also he said to them, “Is a lamp brought to be put under a basket or under a bed? Is it not to be set on a lampstand? For there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to light. If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear.” (Mark 4:21-23
) Holy Spirit, give us ears to hear what Jesus is saying to us. Help us show forth the light of the gospel of Jesus Christ in our communities, our work places, our families, and our parishes.
If I say, “Surely the darkness shall fall on me,” even the night shall be light about me; indeed, the darkness shall not hide from you, but the night shines as the day; the darkness and the light are both alike to you. (Psalm 139:11-12)
Father, thank you that there is no darkness dark enough to hide me from your light. Help me daily walk as a child of your light. Thank you.

STUDY GUIDE: SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON 22, March 11, 2012
Theme Verse: Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit. (Ephesians 2:19-22)
Readings: John 2:13-22; Exodus 20:1-17; Romans 7:13-25′ Psalm 19:7-14
Memory Verse: Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. (Psalm 51:10)

A word received: I want to build you into the church I want. I AM the foundation and cornerstone. Look to me — let me build you up by my Holy Spirit and my word.
Gospel: John 2:13-22
Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, which you have from God? You are not your own; you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body. (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)
He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer’; but you make it a den of robbers.” (Matthew 21:13)
A word received: I long for your bodies to be houses of prayer that I have cleansed and purified by the fire of my Holy Spirit (see Matthew 21:13) I long to drive from you everything that defiles your body.
Old Testament: Exodus 20:1-17
“I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.” (Exodus 20:2)
A word received: Look at how I begin these commands, stating bluntly that you were in bondage and I rescued you. Remember those who said to me, “They answered him, ‘We are descendants of Abraham, and have never been in bondage to any one. How is it that you say, “You will be made free”?’ “ (John 8:33) You cannot keep my commandments until you acknowledge your need to be set free from bondage to sin.
Epistle: Romans 7:13-25
Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I of myself serve the law of God with my mind, but with my flesh I serve the law of sin. (Romans 7:24-25)
A word received: Turn to me and I will deliver you and set you free. You cannot do that on your own, you need the power and cleansing fire of my Holy Spirit.
Psalm: Psalm 19:7-14
A word received: Let my word come into your heart and mind and soul. I want my word and Spirit to bring you to new ife in me. I want to make you my child by adoption and grace.
