Psalm 47:1-9. Verses 1 and 5 KJV, am I exuberant enough about Christ's coming to shout it aloud somewhere today? What can I do this day that silently shouts God's love?

Revelation 18:1-8. Verse 4, how does the summons and warning, "Come out," apply to me and my family in separating ourselves from worldliness? Can this be overdone?
