Scripture reading for August 15th: Psalm 98-100, Galatians 1
Key Scriptures: Psalm 99:1-5 “The Lord reigns; let the peoples tremble! The Lord is great in Zion; He is exalted over all the peoples. Let them praise Your great and awesome Name! Holy is He! The King in His might loves justice. You have established equity; You have executed justice and righteousness in Jacob. Exalt the Lord our God; worship at His footstool! Holy is He!”
The psalmist calls God’s people to worship and holy awe because of Who He is. He is the Holy One. He is the Just One. He is the fair and impartial judge of all mankind whose Name and reputation is awesome. This calls for worship and reverence in contemplation of His holiness.
Galatians 1:3-5 “Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for our sins to deliver us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to Whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.”
Prayer: Lord, thank You for the grace extended to all mankind through the Lord Jesus Christ. Your grace and holiness call me to worship You–now and forever! Amen.
