Good Morning Warrior!
Happy Celebration Sunday; It’s The Lord’s Day!
Word for the Day:
(2 Samuel 4 & 5)
“Secure In Christ for the sake of Others”
Text: 2 Samuel 5:12
“So David knew that the LORD had established him as king over Israel, and that He had exalted His kingdom for the sake of His people Israel.”
This fact that I am “Secure In Christ for the sake of Others,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning. King David “knew that the Lord had established him as king over Israel” - he was Secure in Christ, himself. However David also knew that God had “exalted His Kingdom for the sake of His people.” In other words God made David “Secure in God for the sake of others.” We’re not saved to enjoy ourself in a life of selfishness - we are saved to serve others. We cannot point others to the Security In Christ until we ourself know that we Are Secure In Christ.
When we Know that God has established us as His son and daughter, we also learn that this was done so that “Others May Know,” that God wants to establish them also, as His son and daughter!
I was considering how David’s Love for God Connected With God’s Love for His People Israel. David Loved Israel and Israel Loved King David. David understood that his position as King was given to him “for the sake of God’s people.
Our Father God gave His Only Begotten Son Jesus Christ as Eternal King over “whosoever;” Others like you and I, who would believe and trust in Him as their King! (John 3:16).
Our King lit us up with His Light of Perfect Love for the sake of others; so that we could light them up with His Light in us.
“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.
Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” (Matt.5:14-16).
Yes, my fellow Warrior, you and I are Secure In Christ for the sake of Others! So that all May Know God and Make Him Known by Others! Oooooh Rah!
