Gratitude for God's word....

book 12Today I'm thankful for our sermon yesterday morning. We've now reached the point where Jesus is dying on the cross in our study of Luke. Something that was brought out to me in this was how when Jesus spoke from the cross twice He quoted from the Psalms. That the same Psalms that we read and sing today are the ones that Jesus knew, loved, sang, and found comfort in too.

"And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" (from Psalm 22).

"And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost."

I love how God's word was what was on His mind in such suffering, and the model that that is to us to have scripture hidden in our hearts as followers of Christ.

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
