O LORD our God, you answered them. You were a forgiving God to them, but you punished them when they went wrong. Exalt the LORD our God, and worship at his holy mountain in Jerusalem, for the LORD our God is holy! Psalm 99:8-9The Human Dilemma — is choice. Do we choose Wrong or do we choose Right? How do we know what is Wrong and how do we know what is Right? We know God punishes when we choose wrong.These two verses help us know the Right from the Wrong. When we make choices and Exalt the Lord our God who is Holy, we choose right. When we worship the Lord our God, we choose right.Right and Wrong is so ingrained in us that the second grade class, introduced to the concept of right and left brain, all chose to be right brained. To them, Left-brained seemed wrong. Why is it that parents want to changed their left-handed children to right-handed? Why is turning left at a corner more dangerous than turning right? Why does Jesus sit on the Right Hand of God?There is good news and bad news. And there is the really Good News, that Jesus is Christ our Lord, the Son of God. He was shown to be the Son of God when he was raised from the dead by the power of the Holy Spirit. The apostles were given the authority to tell the story of Jesus to Gentiles as well as the Jews. They tell what God has done for all of us if we believe and obey Him. Obeying Him is choosing to do the Right thing. In this the Holy Spirit, the same Holy Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead, helps us to do the Right Thing. When we fail to choose, we have the promise of forgiveness through the blood of Christ.I exalt the Lord, I praise Him, for in Him, we have life abundant. In Jesus we have salvation from the Human Dilemma, for we will want to choose right and share the Good News about God’s Son.
The Good News is about his Son. In his earthly life he was born into King David’s family line, and he was shown to be the Son of God when he was raised from the dead by the power of the Holy Spirit. He is Jesus Christ our Lord. Through Christ, God has given us the privilege and authority as apostles to tell Gentiles everywhere what God has done for them, so that they will believe and obey him, bringing glory to his name. Romans 1:3-5
