TLIC Psalms. January 31. The Lord Lives.

Read Psalm 18:46-50. 46The Lord lives, and blessed be my rock, and exalted be the God of my salvation – 47the God who gave me vengeance and subdued peoples under me, 48who rescued me from my enemies; yes, you exalted me above those who rose against me; you delivered me from the man of violence. 49For this I will praise you, O Lord, among the nations, and sing to your name. 50Great salvation he brings to his king, and shows steadfast love to his anointed, to David and his offspring forever.

Every Sunday gathering of Christians is the celebration of this truth – The Lord lives! Jesus, the offspring of David, was shown the forever covenant love of God when his heart began to beat again, and breath returned to his lungs.

Every Sunday gathering of Christians celebrates the exaltation of Jesus, the God of our salvation. The anointed of God who has been returned to his rightful place on the throne of Heaven.     

Every Sunday gathering of Christians reminds us of the steadfast covenant love of the Trinity. An unconditional love poured over each and every believer in Christ like oil over the head of a king.

Every Sunday gathering of Christians is a resting in God’s exaltation of us, his rescue from all of our enemies. Sin, condemnation, and death control us no longer. And of course our deliverance from the clutches of the man of violence, Satan himself, who seek to destroy us like a roaring lion preying on the lost lamb.

Every Sunday gathering of Christians is a celebration among the nations. The work of the cross brought reconciliation for both the Jew and the Gentile. No exclusions. No divisions. The supremacy of Christ is all there is. Every tongue and tribe sings praises to the name of Jesus. For his name is wonderful.

To live is Christ is to gather among the nations to bless, exalt, praise, and sing to our living Lord.

Prayer. Jesus, I exalt your name in my heart song. Help me to not neglect gathering with the nations to exalt your name publicly for all that you have done to accomplish so great a salvation for us. Amen.
