Know Him

Psalms 102–103

Bible with handsTwo thoughts to share with you about today’s reading.  The first is the importance of God’s Word.

Psalm 102:18 ESV

“Let this be recorded for a generation to come,
so that a people yet to be created may praise the Lord”

God has given you His Word that you may know of His love, grace, mercy and glory.  He has also given you a responsibility to pass on the importance of His Word to the next generation so that they too will praise and glorify Him.

The second thought for today is about the greatness of God’s love, grace, mercy and glory.

Psalm 103:10-12 ESV

“He does not deal with us according to our sins,
nor repay us according to our iniquities.
For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;
as far as the east is from the west,
so far does he remove our transgressions from us.”

We each deserve eternal pain and suffering for our self-centeredness, sinfulness, and disobedience.  (I wonder if you realize the redundancy the three final adjectives in that last sentence.) But God is so gracious, so full of compassion and grace, that He forgives those that accept His forgiveness, and restores them to Him that they might have an incredible future which they don’t deserve.  It all comes down to obedience brothers.

Obey Him.  Study His Word.  Share His Word.  Live His Word that you may truly know Him and truly live.

Have a blessed day!

Your brother and servant in Christ,

Bill
