What an Example!

The following blog entry is compliments of Pastor Leon Hiebert, Community Care Pastor of Generations Church.

Scripture: Psalm 89:14 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne; love and faithfulness go before you.

Observation: The Psalmist is extolling the greatness and goodness of his God.  What good is righteousness without justice, and what good is love without faithfulness?  Without justice, righteousness turns into pride and without faithfulness love turns into lust.

Application: In the cross we see how far God would go to be just.  He did not sweep my sins under some rug; He took the full payment for me to stand justified.  In the cross we see how far God would go to be faithful in loving me.  He loved me before I even knew Him and loved me even when it cost Him greatly!

Prayer: Lord, let your love for me be an example of how I should love others and how I should love You.  Amen.
