On the Good Side

Each day I will be posting from the daily Bible Reading plan we will be doing at West Side. On weekdays we will be going through the New Testament. On the weekends we will read passages from the Old Testament books of Psalms and Proverbs. We invite you to join along.

Today we see the possible vengeance of God (Psalms 7 & 8). David writes that “If he does not relent, he will sharpen his sword; he will bend and string his bow. He has prepared his deadly weapons; he makes ready his flaming arrows.” These are all instruments of war and death for those who continue to be enemies of God.

Isn’t it wonderful to know that we who are in Christ are considered a friend of God? These instruments of war are not meant for the repentant but the unrepentant. We have and adversary to stand in front of us come the day of judgment. Christ has promised he will speak for all who call upon his name and accept him as LORD.

Do you thank God for the adversary he sent for us? I know I should more often.
