QTVOTD: Emulate what Christ died to give…

“O men, how long shall my honor be turned into shame?  How long will you love vain words and seek after lies?  But know that the LORD has set apart the godly for himself;  the LORD hears when I call to him.” Psalms 4:2-3 [ESV] -> me: I am really liking moving through the Psalms from front to back.  I have referenced the Psalms so many times but getting a feel of how David rolls these out is a whole new look.  Verse 2 here sounds a lot like Malachi 1:6 (to long to type out here but check it out!).  Here we are Halloween and if you have brothers or sisters, do you remember sorting through your candy and trading?  Remember setting aside those special ones that were your favorite so that you could relish in them?  Well, isn’t that what David is tell us about what God does for those who are godly?  I want the Lord to chose me; what’s crazy is that he already has!  My godliness is attained through being IN Christ.  So, shouldn’t my life reflect what Jesus died to give me?  I already have a secured place in Jesus’ inheritance, but oh how I want to emulate that which I have received!  God help me to have the strength to turn away from earthly pursuits and only seek You in Your temple, to gaze upon your beauty!
