The Heritage of Loving God
Isaiah 57-59; Psalms 103; 2 Peter 3
“…from everlasting to everlasting the Lord’s love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children’s children – with those who keep his covenant and remember to obey his precepts.”
Psalm 103:17, 18
“But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.”
2 Peter 3:18
There are amazing benefits to a covenant relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. David spoke of God’s love and righteousness as a heritage that we can pass on to our grandchildren if we keep covenant with God and obey his precepts; however, we know that David’s grandson rebelled against God and split the kingdom. In the new covenant through Jesus, we can experience amazing peace, grace, and favor with God that impacts our family and succeeding generations. Our covenant with Jesus also invites ongoing growth in the knowledge of who Jesus is. Let us not rely on a thirty-year commitment, but let us renew our love, surrender, and obedience to Jesus and his ways each day. Each day let us give him glory through our worship and our lives.
“Lord Jesus, you are my King. Your name is above all names and your glory is over all. I desire to know you more and give you glory this day.”
