"PRAISE THE LORD!"
Today's Reading: Psalm 105
Key Verse: Psalm 105:1-3
Oh, give thanks to the Lord!
Call upon His name;
Make known His deeds among the peoples!
Sing to Him, sing psalms to Him;
Talk of all His wondrous works!
Glory in His holy name;
Those first three verses of today's reading sum up what we should do daily. (1) Give thanks! (2) Pray! (3) Communicate! (4) Sing! (5) Testify! These are five essential elements of our mission! How long are we to do this?
Verse 8 tells us the answer: "For a thousand generations!" Our responsibilities are not over yet! God remembers "His holy promise." He promised Abraham that in his seed all nations would be blessed! Together we will help make the blessing of the "Seed of Abraham," Jesus, known to the whole world! God spared Abraham's son but did not spare His own Son, who was given as the sacrifice for our sins. Our job is to make this amazing Truth known to all generations!
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
Lord God, with much thanksgiving we think of the wondrous work of Salvation accomplished by Jesus' death on the cross. We ask for Your Holy Spirit to communicate through us in a powerful way to share this Good News to all generations, and as our key verse states, may we "Make known [Your] deeds among all the peoples." In the Name of the "Seed" of Abraham, Jesus, we pray! Amen!
