PUNITIVE REDEMPTION

September 9, 2015

Wednesday

 

Psalms 11:7

 

For the righteous LORD loveth righteousness; his countenance doth behold the upright.

 

 

LESSON

 

God hates violence and will punish it, but He loves righteousness and will reward it with His fellowship, presence, protection, and favor. He will admit the godly to His presence, and they will enjoy His blessings. This is a greater prize than physical safety. From time to time it seems as though society as we know it is crumbling around us. The prophets of doom counsel us to take drastic measures to preserve ourselves or we will perish, they say.

The godly should remember that God is still in control, and He will take care of those who trust in Him and behave in harmony with His will. “Our Lord Jesus also had confidence in the Father when he faced the temptations of Satan and the hostility of people. When our hearts trust in him, he has promised to help us in crisis situations. Confidence in the Lord is a mark of Christian maturity.”

 

Memory Verse: Numbers 5:6
