Today we heard a word of reminder of the blessings of the covenant of grace from Psalm 111.
I want to bring it back to something about Jonah’s sermon that is important to take note of for our own walk. It exposes our great need, of being made right with God. For without the mercies of the blood of the lamb we are dead in sin and ripe for the judgment.
When we were dead in trespasses and sins Christ died for us. If that don’t make you at the same time yell amen and tear up and jump for joy and be thankful there is something wrong with you.
The one who is the standard bearer of the kingdom of God goes before us to show the devil himself that we are not to be trifled with for our banner shows the greatest victory ever won.
Today in our devotion from Song of Songs 2:3 we heard a testimony of the loveliness of Christ and the way our senses testify to His goodness in faith.
For Monday’s devotion from Hebrews 6:9-12 we talked about the importance of remaining steadfast in the gospel of Jesus Christ and being thankful for the careful labors of the Lord’s undershepherds.
Here we see one of the places where the Larger Catechism expands on the teaching of the Shorter Catechism so that we can better understand our faith and how the world works in light of the Fall and the consequences which flow from it.
In today’s devotion we heard a reminder that our King has won, and that we are receiving the spoils of His victory at the cross. We see this primarily in the way our enemies have no power or ability to harm us.
We cannot think that an hour of worship with 35 minutes of preaching is going to be sufficient to give us what we need, that is if we have a true desire to learn and grow.
