VerseD: Luke 19:38

saying, “Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!”
Luke 19:38, ESV

How do we respond to the coming King? Are we as fickle as the crowd in Jerusalem 2000 years ago, shifting allegiance based on how we think Jesus should be? Or do we seek the truth of who He is?

VerseD: Jeremiah 17:10

“I, the Lord , search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give to each man according to his ways, According to the results of his deeds.”
Jeremiah 17:10, NASB

God will judge every person: first, on how we each respond to His Son, then by how we respond to others because of His Son.

VerseD: Psalm 145:18

The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.
Psalm 145:18, ESV

“All who call on Him in truth.”

He wants to answer, but He responds to those calling out with an unselfish, honest desire for His will.

(But He also responds to turn our hearts toward Him!)

Weekend Words & Sunday Stanzas – 08/11/2013

Accept the truth that you need more wisdom, and go read the proverbial commentary at Proverbial Thought!

There are two groups in this world:

  1. Those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God.
  2. Those who do not believe that Jesus is the Son of God.

Within the first group there are subgroups which define a response to Jesus:

  1. Those who ignore Jesus.
  2. Those who hate Jesus.
  3. Those who love Jesus.

There can be subgroups for each of these, but the focus of the poem today is an explanation of that last group.
