Ascribe to the Lord Glory Due Him!

Scripture reading for September 6th: Colossians 1, Psalm 29, Proverbs 25

Key Scriptures:  Colossians 1:15-19 “He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation.  For by Him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities–all things were created through Him and in Him all things hold together.  And He is the head of the body, the church.  He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything He might  be preeminent.  For in Him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell . . .”

Jesus Christ was and is the image of God in human form.  He was before all things and by Him all things were created.  He is the head of all authority and the head of the Church, His body.  He is the first to rise from the dead and takes the first place over all in the created world  by God the Fathers design.  He is worthy of our worship, praise, adoration and obedience.

Faith Confession:  I worship and honor Jesus Christ as the One preeminent over the whole of creation and as the Head of the Church, His Body.  Jesus Christ reflects God’s fullness to me and the world.

Psalm 29:1-2  “Ascribe to the Lord, O heavenly beings, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.  Ascribe to the Lord the glory due His Name; worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness.”

Grace is not a sin license!

Scripture reading for July 18th:  Psalm 27-29, 1st Corinthians 10

Key Scriptures:  1st Corinthians 10:8-11 “We must not indulge in sexual immorality as some of them did, and twenty-three thousand fell in a single day.  We must not put Christ to the test, as some of them did and were destroyed by serpents, nor grumble, as some of them did and were destroyed by the Destroyer.  Now these things happened to them as an example, but they were written down for our instruction, on whom the end of the ages has come.”  

Paul reminded the Corinthians that God had clearly judged His people for their past sins.  This included sexual immorality, testing or tempting God, and grumbling against God and His appointed leaders.  Their history was recorded in God’s Word as examples for us living in the last days under the New Covenant in Jesus Christ.  Grace is not a license to sin.  Christ is coming soon for a holy Bride!

Psalm 29:1-2 “Ascribe to the Lord, O heavenly beings, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.  Ascribe to the Lord the glory due His Name; worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness.” 

 

Prayer:  Lord, keep me from besetting sins of flesh and spirit.  Thank You for the examples written down for me and all who love You.  We want to worship You in the splendor of holiness.  Amen.
