For All the Saints - February 11, 2019

Dear friends in Christ,

On the fourteenth and fifteenth, I couldn’t help but notice that our daily readings juxtapose Jeremiah chapter thirteen and Psalm one. Jeremiah chapter thirteen is a devastating oracle of judgment against rebellious Israel. For generations, they have spurned the Laws of God. There is no longer any hope of remaining in their current circumstance. They are going to face invasion from foreign armies and exile. By contrast, Psalm chapter one extols the blessings that belong to the one who “delights in the Law of the Lord.” It reads,

They are like trees planted by streams of water, which yield their fruit in its season, and their leaves do not wither. In all that they do, they prosper. (Psalm 1:3, NRSV)

Whether you regularly use these daily readings or another source, I encourage you to read these two sections together. Contemplate the difference between righteousness and evil; between delighting in the ways of God and delighting in all manner of sinfulness. For,

The Lord watches over the way of the righteous. But the way of the wicked will perish. (Psalm 1:6, NRSV)

Blessings,

Pastor John
