Best Verses: Psalm 50:4-5 “4 He summons the heavens above, and the earth, to judge His people: 5 ‘Gather My godly ones to Me, those who have made a covenant with Me by sacrifice.’”
HEAVENS AND EARTH
I will have to admit that I do not remember these verses. That happens a lot, though. I have read through the Bible many times, but each year I find verses that I just don’t remember. These two today are in that group.
God is directing the heavens and the earth to gather His people. Look at how we are identified. God calls us “godly ones.” We are the ones “who have made a covenant” with Him. We are protected by that covenant that was made through the blood of Jesus. I love that God has called us “godly ones.”
I know your children are precious to you. Whether they are three or thirty-three, our children are special. But are they godly? We know we are all born sinners. We are born in flesh. Only God’s redeeming power can make us godly. There is not one thing in us that can do that.
So, one of your jobs is to make your children godly. “Right Carl! I can’t do that.” That’s correct. Your job is to direct them and lead them to the One who can. You provide the environment where they can discover the truth. You teach them God’s Word which will draw them to Him. You pray for them and with them to show them how to talk to God. He will do the rest.
Do you consider yourself to be a godly person? God does, if you are one of His. Start living like it, if you are not. Remember who you are in covenant with. Let His attributes be lived out in your life each day.
Righteous Judge, You may send the heavens and the earth to gather me one day. I am excited about that. I am ready to see You. Help me share the good news with others while I am here.
