Bible in a Year: 2 Kings 19–21, John 4:1–30

People who . . . lack understanding are like the beasts that perish.
Psalm 49:20

Today's Scripture & Insight: Psalm 49:5–20

My old dog sits by my side and stares off into space. A penny for her thoughts. One thing I know she isn’t thinking about is dying because dogs don’t “understand.” They don’t think about future things. But we do. No matter our age or health or wealth, we at some point think about dying. That’s because we, unlike beasts, have “understanding,” according to Psalm 49:20. We know that we will die, and there’s nothing we can do about it. “No one can redeem the life of another or give to God a ransom for them” (v.7). No one has enough money to buy himself or herself out of the grave.

But there is a way out of the finality of death: “God will redeem me from the realm of the dead,” insists the psalmist. “He will surely take me to himself” (v. 15; literally, “He will take me in”). Robert Frost said, “Home is the place where, when you have to go there, they have to take you in.” God has redeemed us from death through His Son, “who gave himself as a ransom for all people” (1 Timothy 2:6). Thus Jesus promised that when our time comes, He will greet us and take us in (John 14:3).

When my time comes, Jesus, who gave to God the price of my life, will welcome me into His Father’s house with open arms.

By: David H. Roper

Reflect & Pray
How do you deal with the thought of dying? On what do you base your confidence of heaven?


I’m grateful, God, that You have provided a place for Your children. I look forward to being at home with You.

THE SACRIFICES IN THE BOOK OF NUMBERS (8)


Whoever touches the body of anyone who has died, and does not purify himself… That person shall be cut off from Israel. He shall be unclean, because the water of purification was not sprinkled on him.

GOD HAS A SUBSTITUTE
Open Heavens
for Monday, January 13, 2014
by Pastor E.A Adeboye

GOD HAS A SUBSTITUTE

One thing we need to learn in today’s reading is that God always has a substitute. If God says He wants you, rejoice! However, be careful, because even as He is choosing you, He has already prepared a substitute. 1 Samuel 2:27-30 tells us about Eli. God chose Eli and his family to serve Him. God later...More
