Glory to God in the Highest

The heavenly messenger had quieted their fears. He had told them how to find Jesus. With tender regard for their human weakness, he had given them time to become accustomed to the divine radiance. Then the joy and glory could no longer be hidden. The whole plain was lighted up with the bright shining of the hosts of God. Earth was hushed, and heaven stooped to listen to the song, -- "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men."

Oh that today the human family could recognize that song! The declaration then made, the note then struck, will swell to the close of time, and resound to the ends of the earth. When the Sun of Righteousness shall arise, with healing in His wings, that song will be re-echoed by the voice of a great multitude, as the voice of many waters, saying "Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth." Rev. 19: 6.

The Problem with Pride

Nothing good results from pride. It alienates us from our fellow human beings and makes us self- sufficient. It?s impossible to believe we are better than others without simultaneously experiencing disconnection from them. Pride can creep into our lives through our possessions, our success, our knowledge, our thinking, or a multitude of other means. But regardless of its form, pride is always damaging.

Pride can be recognized in our conversations. As we speak with others, pride may tempt us to monopolize the conversation. Sometimes we spend too much time sharing our own opinions and dwelling on our own experiences rather than exploring the needs or thoughts of others. Humility in conversation will lead us to show interest and care in the people with whom we converse.

Proud people, on the other hand, often are argumentative and create discord and strife through their interaction. Ultimately, pride leads not to humility but rather to the humiliation of the other person.5 It leads us to take all the credit for our successes, neglecting to acknowledge the important contributions of others. It has a corrupting influence.

God's Covenant Completed

God wants us to believe what is hard for us to believe. God?s love for us is beyond our comprehension (John 3:16). He wants to spend eternity with us in a loving relationship, in a perfect, beautiful environment. That is the intended result of the everlasting covenant (Revelation 21:1?27; 22:1?21). God?s remnant are those who enter into His covenant and who will experience the completion of that covenant. Today and for eternity, anyone can experience the results of God?s everlasting covenant.

Do you want to experience the completion of God?s covenant in your life? You can start that process right now by asking Jesus, the Jewish Messiah who is the heart of God?s everlasting covenant, to come into your heart. Tell Him you want to accept His atoning sacrifice for your sins and that you want to accept His covenant and have an eternal loving relationship with Him.

The Truth About God

God is loving, kind, long-suffering, merciful, gentle, good, and intimately concerned with the details of your life. He is infinitely bigger than we could ever dream possible, so we are unable to understand everything He does. Our failure to comprehend God does not mean He is bad. It means His goodness is beyond our comprehension. . . .

The story of Scripture is a play in three acts: Paradise created, Paradise lost, and Paradise restored. Until Paradise is completely restored, bad things will continue to happen to good people. We have never been promised anything other than that. God has promised to love, accept, forgive, save, and give us a meaningful life here on Earth. He has further promised that this life is but a shadow of that which is to come. Ultimately, eternal life will be ours. And it is in that life that all sickness, sin, sorrow, and loss will be forever banished.

In the meantime, we are loved with a love too great for human comprehension. God is crazy about us and longs for us to be happy! That is the truth about God as I see it.

Standing on the Promises

The promises God has given us in His Word are of enormous significance for our life as Christians. The apostle Peter writes that through God's promises we will receive all we need for our Christian life and that thereby we partake of God's nature. We could also say that through the biblical promises God has given us His grace and strength and has given us the gift that was promised. . . . 

God will keep His promises! It is helpful to underline God's promises in the Bible and to memorize them so that we know them when we need them. . . .when we know that our request is in full harmony with God's will beause we are looking at things through God's perspective, we can be certain that He hears our prayer and that we will receive what we ask for.

New Covenant Sanctuary

The plan for our redemption was not an afterthought, a plan formulated after the fall of Adam. It was a revelation of ?the mys­tery which hath been kept in silence through times eternal.? Romans 16:25, R. V. It was an unfolding of the principles that from eternal ages have been the foundation of God?s throne. From the beginning, God and Christ knew of the apostasy of Satan, and of the fall of man through the deceptive power of the apostate. God did not ordain that sin should exist, but He foresaw its existence, and made provision to meet the terrible emergency. So great was His love for the world, that He covenanted to give His only-begotten Son, ?that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.? John 3:16. . . .

This was a voluntary sacrifice. Jesus might have remained at the Father?s side. He might have retained the glory of heaven, and the homage of the angels. But He chose to give back the scepter into the Father?s hands, and to step down from the throne of the universe, that He might bring light to the benighted, and life to the perishing.?The Desire of Ages, p. 22.

The Sanctuary in Heaven

Just as the animal was killed at the altar outside of the sanctuary, so Jesus Christ died on the cross on earth outside of the heavenly sanctuary. Christ?s death on the cross summed up and fulfilled all the types and shadows in all the various sacrifices in the Old Testament system, which all pointed forward to His death.

When Jesus Christ died on the cross, the temple and its ritual lost their significance. The curtain in the temple was torn in half (Matthew 27:51), indicating that the temple and its services had now lost their meaning in God?s plan. Even though the Jews? and even certain Hebrew Christians, as we can gather from the letter to the Hebrews? continued to offer sacrifices in the earthly temple, these sacrifices were to no avail. Jesus Christ, the real Sacrifice, had come, fulfilling the totality of what these animal sacrifices had pointed forward to, making such sacrifices meaningless after He had died.

Safeguarding Our Set-Apart Time

There?s not a right or wrong way to have devotions. The important thing is that we have them! However, it?s crucial that we make time for both Bible study and prayer. We shouldn?t neglect one for the other; the two go hand in hand.

I usually start my devotions with my prayer time, as it just seems natural to start my day by talking with God. I also want the Holy Spirit?s blessing before I start reading His Word.

As there are many things and people I pray for daily, I?ve written my routine prayer requests down on flash cards, often with a Bible verse on the other side. Then I put the flash cards on a key ring, so they all stay together, and I can carry them with me wherever I go. Once a specific request is answered, I take the card off the ring and fold it up, putting it in a jar on my shelf. It has encouraged my faith to watch the prayer jar being filled up as God answers my prayers!

The Christian Emphasis

Though Paul had sent both Timothy and Titus to the church at Corinth, he also dictated to Sosthenes ?one of the richest, most instructive, and most powerful of all his letters,?the first extant Epistle to the Corinthians.? Paul spoke in a very forthright manner about the divisions that were shaking the church. Some were claiming to be followers of Paul, some of Apollos, some of Peter, and some of Christ. Each group had his or her own favorite preacher, and this was contrary to the Spirit of Christ. The Greeks were in danger of valuing the eloquence and skills of the particular orator they favored at the expense of the message. ?The ?preaching of the cross? is the message of salvation through faith in the crucified Lord. Such a message appeared as the height of foolishness to the philosophy- loving Greek and to the ritualistic- minded Jew.?

Paul was entirely capable of debating theological minutia, but the Corinthians needed to hear about Jesus. Paul, therefore, stressed the most important part of the gospel. He stressed Jesus Christ and His sacrifice for humanity. The cross is the centerpiece of the gospel.

The Temptation

After Jesus was baptized, the Holy Spirit led Him into the wilderness to fast and pray and get ready for His ministry. After He had been there fasting and praying forty days, Satan, disguised as an angel, came to see Jesus. Satan pointed to some stones and, appealing to the Lord?s appetite, said, ?If You are the Son of God, why don?t You use Your power and turn one of these stones into bread for Yourself?? He continued his attacks, but every time Satan tempted Jesus, the Savior answered him with Scripture, ?It is written . . .?

There is power in the Bible, and if we study it diligently and know its verses well, we will always have a ready answer to the deceiver?s temptations.

As High as the Heavens

For as the heavens are high above the earth,

So great is His lovingkindness toward those who fear and worship Him [with awe-filled respect and deepest reverence].

As far as the east is from the west,

So far has He removed our transgressions from us.

?Psalm 103:11, 12, AMP

I read Psalm 103:11, 12 and looked toward the west through our dining room window. The sky was light blue with no clouds in sight. What a gorgeous sight! I could see the snow-covered Rocky Mountains far out in the distance. And the sun was shining everywhere. Then I looked up. I realized that I could not see to the very top of the sky. And yet, I knew there was more sky beyond. It just kept on going higher and higher. I looked to the right and to the left and kept on seeing more and more and more sky. Yes, it went beyond where I could see?up, down, right, and left. I knew it went all the way down and around the bottom of the world!

What an amazing picture of God?s love! I cannot see how far it reaches. Nor can I tell how much is in the space between where I am and as far as I can see. Oh, how much love that is! And somewhere in all that love is tiny, little me. Words cannot describe the feelings I experienced. Of course, there?s room for a multitude of more people to be embraced by that love.

The Pain of Unworthiness

Jesus? words in the Sermon on the Mount challenge humanity?s core values. Instead of self-reliance, they speak of relying on God; instead of human ingenuity, they propose divine providence. God?s blessings are given to those who desperately need them. Thus, being ?poor in spirit? is absolutely crucial to our spiritual journey.

Spiritual poverty is an acknowledgment of ?utter helplessness,? the recognition of having ?no personal merit,? and a deep conviction of sin. The recognition of spiritual poverty is a prerequisite of salvation. Jesus said, ?It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners? (Mark 2:17). The description of His overarching purpose was ?to seek and to save the lost? (Luke 19:10).

There are at least three facets of spiritual poverty: a lack of spiritual standing, the condition of spiritual emptiness, and the inability to become spiritually rich by ourselves.
