September 20, 2020 – Psalm 118:19-21

Open to me the gates of righteousness, that I may enter through them and give thanks to the Lord. This is the gate of the Lord; the righteous shall enter through it. I thank you that you have answered me and have become my salvation. Psalm 118:19-21.

Enter into the Gates of Righteousness that contain His Peace and Love.   So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God,  built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone. Ephesians 2:19-20. Our identity is in Christ Jesus, not in this world when we choose to follow His Way.  He is our Salvation.

But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it— the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe.  Romans 3:21-22.

Dear Lord God, because of your great love, You have made a way through Jesus. Though we are all sinners, we are saved through the mercy and Grace of Jesus. Each day His mercies are new.  I rejoice in You, O, Lord.  In the Name of Jesus, Amen.

The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims His handiwork. Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge.  Psalm 19:1-2.  I sing praises to You, as each Day dawns. 

O my Strength, I will sing praises to you, for you, O God, are my fortress,  the God who shows me steadfast love.  Psalm 59:17.

The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. This is the Lord’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes. This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:22-24.
