Everyone Did What Was Right In His Own Eyes

In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his own eyes.” – Judges 21:25

This is the ominous last verse of Judges.

No king. No law. No order. It was the Wild, Wild West with no sheriff in town.

Sound familiar? Today, everyone is doing what is right in their own eyes. However, there is a way that seems right, but leads to death (Prov. 14:12).

Puritan Matthew Henry notes, “Self-deceivers prove self-destroyers. See the vanity of carnal mirth.”

We have a long-suffering King. He is long-suffering, not forever-suffering. Eventually, His patience will run out.

Those Who Spoke To You the Word of God

“Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith.” Heb. 13:7

The fruit of someone’s life who speaks the word of God will be worthy of remembering and imitating.

That’s the power of the word of God!

Sola Scriptura

Jesus’s Response to Venerating Mary

“And it happened, as He spoke these things, that a certain woman from the crowd raised her voice and said to Him, “Blessed is the womb that bore You, and the breasts which nursed You!” But He said, “More than that, blessed are those who hear the word of God and keep it!” – Luke 11:27-28

This is what happened when someone tried to venerate Mary in front of Jesus.

Jesus pointed rather to the word.

Jesus pointed rather to obedience to that word.

Sola Scriptura

Heed the Word!

We don’t need any other private words from God or men proclaiming to receive private messages from God.

The Bible is enough.

The Bible is sufficient.

The word is confirmed.

Heed it!

“And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place” – 2 Peter 1:19

Sola Scriptura

The Lord Would Fulfill His Promises

“Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill His promises to her!” – Luke 1:45

The Lord will fulfill His promises. Do you believe that? Blessed you will be if you believe it!

Set the Lord Always Before You

“I have set the Lord always before me;
Because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved.” Psa. 16:8

Don’t take your eyes off of Jesus.

“Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices; My flesh also will rest in hope.” (Verse 9)

Setting the Lord always before you makes your heart glad and allows your body to rest.

Everything We Need

“His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue,” – 2 Peter 1:3

God has given us everything we need to live a holy life. It’s through knowing Jesus.

Accept, Enthrone, & Share Jesus!

Accept Jesus (John 1:12)

Enthrone Jesus (Romans 12:1-2; John 14:14)

Share Jesus! Witness for Him (1 John 1:3; Acts 1:8)

Sunrise to Sunset

“From the rising of the sun to it’s going down, the LORD’S Name is to be praised.” -Psa. 113:3

That is the whole purpose of any day. That is why there is a “day” in the first place.

For the LORD’s Name to be praised.
