Celebrating a special day of sorts… on several levels: First of all, celebrating the “Lord’s Day” with fellow Christians (a great way to begin a week!), then Father’s Day (and celebrating a wonderful “Heavenly Father”), then the beginning of Summer). Because of COVID-19 it’s been awhile since many Christians have been able to meet together. Some churches have started meeting a few weeks ago, but for others today may be the first real opportunity to “meet together” with fellow Christians at some level!
Today, my Bible reading, celebrated the privilege of “meeting together” – Psalm 111! Just let me say; It’s a wonderful passage in celebration of that privilege! Sharon and I are in San Diego this weekend and today marks the beginning of that privilege here on a limited level for many people. I’m going to enjoy it with our family!
Here’s some of what Psalm 111 says in the New Living Translation…
“Praise the Lord!
“I WILL THANK THE LORD WITH ALL MY HEART AS I MEET WITH HIS GODLY PEOPLE!
“How amazing are the deeds of the Lord! All who delight in Him should ponder them. Everything He does reveals his glory and majesty. His righteousness never fails. He causes us to remember his wonderful works. How gracious and merciful is our Lord! All he does is just and good! … What a holy, awe-inspiring name he has!
“Praise him forever!” (From Psalm 111)
So if you have the privilege of meeting with fellow Christians today for worship… My advice? Be grateful! Praise the Lord!! Celebrate!!! (But also… be careful 😉)
