March 16, 2018 – Psalm 85:10-12

Unfailing love and truth have met together. Righteousness and peace have kissed! Truth springs up from the earth, and righteousness smiles down from heaven. Psalm 85:10-11.

In these verses of Psalm 85, there is a cluster of words, brought forth through God and His One and Only Son, Jesus, because of His great Love, Truth, Righteousness, and Peace. These four words call us to celebrate Life in Jesus.

John 14:6 – Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.  Do we live the Way Jesus gives us? Can we Love like Jesus?  

Righteousness goes as a herald before Him…What is this righteousness?  To be righteous is to be ‘right with God’.  God turns his back on those who sin.  He blesses those who live as His Children and walk in His Light.  So many blessings – He pours out the blessings on us.  There are no sprinkles from God when we are His Children.

Praising, Gratitude, Giving, Loving, Speaking Love, come from the heart of God’s Children.  It all begins with thinking God’s Way and not searching after our own wishes and desires.  Only Jesus gives us the power to change and love others as Jesus loves them. So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. John 13:34.

Yes, the Lord pours down his blessings. Our land will yield its bountiful harvest. Righteousness goes as a herald before him, preparing the way for his steps. Psalm 85.12-13
