My Former Conduct

“For you have heard of my former conduct in Judaism, how I persecuted the church of God beyond measure and tried to destroy it.” – Gal. 1:13

Paul is the ultimate example of what God can do with a sinner.

I have enough

‘Take, I pray thee, my blessing that is brought to thee; because God hath dealt graciously with me, and because I have enough.’ And he urged him, and he took it.” – Jacob (Gen. 33:11)

Jacob has an infinite God as his portion. He had well more than enough. In the Hebrew, it reads, “I have all.”

As does anyone who trusts in the Lord. There is no fear of want through Jesus.

“Though a million men behold the sun, there is light enough for them all.” – Thomas Watson

A humble heart is His home

For thus says the high and exalted One Who lives forever, whose name is Holy, “I dwell on a high and holy place, And also with the contrite and lowly of spirit In order to revive the spirit of the lowly And to revive the heart of the contrite.” – God (Isa. 57:15)

The central truth for the comfort of God’s people is that the infinitely Great One cares even for the infinitely little.” – Charles J. Ellicott

“A humble heart is His throne.” – Thomas Watson

From the highest height (Heaven), to the lowest depth (a sinner’s heart): God is there. His gracious and glorious presence is boundless.

I Went Mourning Without The Sun

I went mourning without the sun: I stood up, and I cried in the congregation.” – Job 30:28

The enjoyment of God is the sweetest enjoyment one can have. To have it not, is to mourn in the dark.

Were there not ten cleansed?

“Now it happened as He went to Jerusalem that He passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. Then as He entered a certain village, there met Him ten men who were lepers, who stood afar off. And they lifted up their voices and said, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!” So when He saw them, He said to them, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And so it was that as they went, they were cleansed. And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned, and with a loud voice glorified God, and fell down on his face at His feet, giving Him thanks. And he was a Samaritan. So Jesus answered and said, “Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?” And He said to him, “Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well.” – Luke 17:11-19

A leper can teach us about gratitude.
