Psalm 49:8 For the redemption of their soul is precious…

Oh how true a statement!  The blood redemption of the soul of man is of immeasurable worth.  It is precious!  To be precious means to be worth more than all others, to be admired above all others and to be heavy.  Oh yes, the redeeming power of Christ carries a heaviness that cannot be explained with the words of man.  The Lord Jesus paid a heavy price upon Calvary for our redemption.  And to the redeemed soul, redemption is a heavy gift of worth.  It is precious because of its price.  It is heavy because of its period of longevity.  It last for eternity.  By it we have been given eternal life!  It has no expiration date.  It has no life expectancy because it is beyond life.  The blood redemption of Christ is beyond all.  Here in this chapter the previous verses discuss the action of acquiring redemption of the soul. 49:6 They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches;  7 None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him: 8  (For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceaseth for ever:).  Man cannot offer enough monetary worth that will pay for the redemption of the soul.  The end of our text says; “and it ceaseth for ever”.  If a man could acquire every single dollar in the country it would not even come close to the price of redemption.  Even if man could get access to every piece of money and precious metal on the face of the entire earth it would not even get the attention of the Creator.  My friend, the soul has one acceptable price and that is the blood of the only begotten Son of God.  Oh how precious is the redemption of the soul.  Lastly, this redemption is precious because it is personal.  Hallelujah!  I praise the lovely name of the Lord Jesus because I can claim this precious redemption as my personal salvation.  Can you??  Amen.

Revelation 2:4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.

The disciple John pens down the letters to the churches as the Lord speaks the messages to him.  As we know, there are seven of these letters, one to each of the churches that represent the levels of spirituality and times of the church throughout the ages.  As the Lord gives the words to John for the church of Ephesus, their qualities are mentioned and commended by the Lord.  2:2 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:  3 And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted.  The Lord is quick to remind the church that He knows all about the good works of the ministry there.  He mentions some really great qualities of their character as well.  In verses 2 and 3 one might think that this is the church to join.  It appears that they are doing so much in the name of the Lord.  They are a busy church.  But they have grown cold spiritually while being busy doing spiritual things.  We can have a church that is busy doing spiritual works and not be in love with Christ and our works will be of no avail in our relationship with Him.  I think we all have made the mistake at times of thinking if we are busy then we are pleasing the Lord and that we are right in the middle of His will.  Many Christians today are living a life of busy.  We fill our calendars and are proud to do so.  Many churches and Christians of today are busy, busy.  There’s a different committee meeting every night of the week.  Busy, busy, busy.  Although being a child of God should give us a desire to serve the Lord, we should be careful that busy does not become our god.  Just because we are busy does not mean we are in God’s will.  A full calendar does not make us right with God.  To be right with God we must be in love with the Lord Jesus.  This love is a glory love.  It is a desire to please the Lord in every area of our life.  It is a love that erupts from the very soul of the believer.  It is the connection between our spirit and His Spirit.  It is the discerning of His voice.  It is the yearning to be near Him in prayer, study and worship.  It is time spent with Him one on one.  Only the saved child of God can experience this love.  In our verse, the Lord makes it clear that this church has left its first love.  We love Him because He first loved us and gave His life for us upon Calvary.  Dear friend, busy doesn’t prove love.  Only love proves love.  It’s not is how much we are doing but in what we are doing and when we are doing it and even how we are doing it.  True love for the Saviour will follow the example that John left for us in His serving the Lord Jesus.  I recall once when Jesus and His disciples were gathered for fellowship and everyone was busy trying to figure out the works of the Lord, but John was found leaning on the Lord.  As He leaned upon the Lord He could no doubt hear the very heartbeat of eternal life.  As He leaned upon the Lord he could feel the very breath of God.  Oh dear friend, take time today to lean on the Lord.  Don’t let busy be your god, but rather allow God to be your God.  Stay near enough to hear His voice.  We must be careful not to loose focus of what this thing is really all about… The Lord Jesus.  Amen.

Psalm 132:14 This is my rest for ever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it.

As we reside here on earth it seems as though this carnal body continually desires rest.  Sometimes it seems that we arose from a nights sleep more tired than when we went to bed.  It is a very tiring thing to reside upon this earth.  Not only do we experience physical tiredness but also mental tiredness.  As we contend with the pace of this world we can easily become weary in the mind.  I must say that mental exhaustion is probably the hardest tired to recover from.  The cares of the world weigh heavy upon the mind.  Dear friend we must learn to lean on God’s grace.  We must learn to not allow anxiousness to overtake us.  God is sovereign and He knows all and is in control of all.  Even though it seems that many things are out of His control, He still has His controlling hand upon this earth.  He has a plan and His plan will not be altered.  We must learn what to put our hands on and what not to touch at all.  We learn this through Spiritual discernment.  Daily prayer and meditation in His Word will increase our ability to hear the voice of the Lord.  We can narrow down our list of cares dramatically by crossing out the cares that are absolutely out of our control.  If it is obvious that we cannot alter the thing ourselves then we must lean totally on His grace.  Yes, we will still be concerned about the matter, but we must be careful not to allow it to overtake us.  Wow friend, I’m feeling tired just discussing the cares of this world.  This leads us to our verse for today.  When the trump of God blows and we are caught up in the rapture to be with our Lord in the eternal realm of His time then we will have entered into eternal rest.  It will be total rest of the body and mind.  We will have received our glorified body and glorified bodies don’t get tired.  Hallelujah!  What a day that will be when we will experience eternal rest.  Our carnal minds cannot wrap around such a celestial thought.  Rest… eternal rest.  Praise the Lord for this soon to come forever rest.  Amen.

Ps 133:1 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!

Here we have a verse that speaks powerful truth!  It is vital to the spiritual health of the church that brothers and sisters in Christ are in one accord.  Satan knows he cannot take away our salvation, so his prerogative is to damage our relationships among the “brethren”.  If we allow him to damage our relationships among the brethren then our relationship with the Lord will be hindered.  The end result will be to rob our active joy.  Have you ever noticed that the things that we tend to get disturbed about are really irrelevant in the big picture?  The enemy will sling some mud on someone and make it look like someone else did it.  And then he will whisper to them through his evil voices until that person acts out.  When they blow up then Satan’s poison scatters.  If the issue is not handled and cleaned up soon, then things can become very damaging.  Dear friend, it is vital that we maintain good unity among the brothers and sisters in Christ.  The book of Acts is filled with examples of the importance of accord among the saved.  Here are just a few; Acts 1:14 These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren. Acts 2:1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. Acts 2:46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart.  Notice all three of these verses mention very vital areas of our Christian life that must be maintained.  Our spiritual walk with the Lord depends upon our unity among the brethren.  Our spiritual worship depends upon our unity with the brethren.  And our spiritual witness depends upon our unity among the brethren.  Friend, unity matters.  The next time you feel offended, go pray.  The next time you feel hurt, go pray.  The next time you feel used, go pray.  My friend, we must maintain a strong pray life in order to keep unity.  A strong prayer life will affect the worship services at our church.  Therefore if the worship services are filled with the power of God’s glory then our pride and strife will be broken and we will seek unity.  A church that is not in unity will be a spiritually dead church.  It will be a church with much offense and hurt.  Therefore no one gets help and the enemy succeeds.  Oh dear brothers and sisters in Christ, strive and pray for unity.  It is a must have ingredient of our Christian life.  Amen.

John 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

There is one thing we can say for sure, doing the right thing does not always sit well with the worldly.  As a child of God we strive daily to do what is right according to the will of God.  We attentively adjust our day to follow the leading of His Spirit.  Have you ever heard the old wise statement; “oil and water do not mix”?  That is a fact, oil and water don’t mix.  And neither does righteousness and unrighteousness.  Dear friend, if you strive to do right and to walk in holiness then you can plan on the worldly giving you heat.  Our verse states it well.  There is a particular hate that the world has for those of us who are truly born again.  No, they may not express their feelings boldly as hate, but that disgruntled spirit within them shows it.  It is almost as if it is a jealous hate.  Our verse reminds us that the Lord chose us to be His child.  The world hates us because we are chosen of God.  The world does not even realize the root to the disgruntled spirit that they are dealing with, but it is definitely a spirit of strife and jealousy.  Here is a true way to determine those who are on the Lord’s side from the worldly; it is when you are blessed of God.  Watch and listen to the response of others around you the next time the Lord pours out a blessing on your life.  Those that are in the Lord’s will and are also seeking the walk of righteousness will be excited and grateful along with you.  Those that are walking outside the will of the Lord (not necessarily lost but out of fellowship with Him) will begin to growl and spit.  Some do it behind your back and some are bold enough to do it to your face.  Some go to great measures to express their disapproval of your being blessed.  Rarely do they present the issue as being jealous but that is the taproot to it all.  My friend, righteousness and unrighteousness do not mix.  So when the Lord blesses you today, don’t be caught off guard when the worldly express a spirit of hatred toward you.  The blessing may come through something as simple as a little fellowship with another saint of God or even a personal blessing of His love and mercy.  Thank God for His wonderful and providential blessings.  Don’t be ashamed of Him or His blessings.  They hated Jesus and they hate His children as well.  But we have a strength within us that can overcome this attack from the worldly.  This strength is one of those benefits we have because of Christ’s work on Calvary.  John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.  Amen!

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God
Eph 2:8.
