Psalm 119:1,2: Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD. Blessed are those who keep His testimonies, who seek Him with the whole heart! The Hebrew word “torah,” translated law, basically means instruction or direction. The Law was never designed as a means of salvation; no one could be saved by keeping it. Instead, the Law was the means for the Israelites to learn how to live as God’s holy people. Jesus Christ opened the Door for a relationship with the Father. And what a wonderful relationship it is!! Have a super weekend friends!

Jesus is in Jerusalem talking with a crowd of people when they ask him if he is “the Christ.” John 10: 25-30: “Jesus answered them, ‘I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in My Father’s name, they bear witness of Me. But you do not believe, because you are not of My sheep, as I said to you. My sheep hear My voice, and I know them and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. I and My Father are one.”‘ Jesus reminded the Jewish leaders of His words and works. Jesus was the Messiah and said so. Let us embrace His love and forgiveness and enter into eternal life.

Romans 5:8-11: “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.”
So, if God loved us when we were His ungodly enemies, how much more will He love us now that we are His children! Through Jesus’ sacrifice we are no longer enemies of God, but at peace with Him. The point is that since God’s love and the death of Christ have brought us justification, then as a result of that love, we can also expect salvation from God’s wrath.

Dueteronomy 6:1,2,5,6 – “Now this is the commandment, and these are the statutes and judgments which the LORD your God has commanded to teach you, that you may observe them in the land which you are crossing over to possess, that you may fear the LORD your God, to keep all His statures and His commandments which I command to you, you and your son and your grandson, all the days of your life, and that your days may be prolonged….Hear O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one! You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.” The fear of the LORD includes awe for His greatness and holiness, love for Him, and submission to His will.

Nahum 1: 2,3: “God is jealous, and the LORD avenges; the LORD avenges and is furious. The LORD will take vengeance on His adversaries, and He reserves wrath for His enemies; the LORD is slow to anger and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked.” Slow to anger indicates the patience of the Lord. However, God’s patience is not a reason to disbelieve His final judgment. Stay cool this weekend brothers and sisters – gonna be a scorcher in Mississippi!

Psalm 13: 5,6 – “But I have trusted in Your mercy; my heart shall rejoice in Your salvation. I will sing to the LORD, because He has dealt bountifully with me.” The term “mercy” describes God’s loyal love, His faithfulness to His commitment to take care of His people. I will sing was the psalmist’s vow to praise God in the worshiping community. Praise God for His majesty!
