What I Read Today;
Revelation 18; Matthew 7; Lamentations 4; Psalm 86-87; 2 Kings 3-4; Leviticus 24
Psalm 86 vs. 11-13, “Teach me your way, O Lord, that I may walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart to revere your name. I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart, and I will glorify your name forever. For great is your steadfast love toward me; you have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.” NRSV
I have problems comprehending how much God has done for me sometimes. Especially during all the struggles of recent weeks.
The reason I continue studying and reading God’s word is to continually remind myself of what Jesus did and what he is doing. So today, like the Psalmist, I ask Jesus to continue sending his Holy Spirit to teach me how to love more deeply. I ask Jesus o allow me to reach someone today with a message of God’s grace, and most importantly, to keep in the front of my mind the fact that Jesus has saved me from eternal punishment by living a life I can’t live and dying in my place.
Because of Jesus, I know that my salvation is secure. Everything else will go away. But Jesus will remain.
