1 Chronicles 17
19 O Lord, for thy servant’s sake, and according to thine own heart, hast thou done all this greatness, in making known all these great things.
20 O Lord, there is none like thee, neither is there any God beside thee, according to all that we have heard with our ears.
His words encouraged me this Sunday morning and I rejoice that God has made this day for me…and you too! What a privilege to go into the house of God and hear the word of God. It hasn’t changed, though men have tried; God’s message is still going out, day after day, week after week. It is unfortunate that it is still being rejected in the same fashion. There will be a day when many will wish they had taken the time to go to church, especially with their families.
This morning my heart is filled with gratitude, for God has shown His great mercy for this “servant’s sake.” He has given me another day that I might serve in His house and share the gospel with young people who need to know the world’s a liar. This evening if the Lord wills I’ll travel to a prison to share the gospel in song to men who are paying the price for believing the lies of the world.
What’s the lie?
That there is peace, contentment or great gain in anything other than Jesus Christ, that is the lie. Men, women and children seek for it every day only to discover at life’s end they were always just three words away…
“Jesus Save Me.”
