Good morning dear Salties,
Have I said how much I miss you? Well, I do. We’ve reached the end of March and it looks like we’re in for at least another month of limited social contact. I hope you all have seen the video from last Sunday’s “service”.
Here’s another name of God to read about and appreciate:
Adonai – Lord – (Genesis 15:2) This is Lord, in the sense of master or owner. God is the rightful owner of all that exists, and as such has complete authority over His creation. He can demand anything He so chooses. To see what kind of master He is, see Deut. 10:19-22; Psalm 121 and 123:2. In Exodus 12:43-45 we see that only true slaves could participate in the Passover meal. “A sojourner or hired hand shall not eat of it” (v45). In the same way that only those purchased (v44) could eat the Passover meal, so also only those who have been redeemed (purchased) in Christ will participate in the Marriage Supper. 1 Cor. 6:20 says we have been bought with a price, and because we have been bought, we are the rightful property (slaves) of God (Romans 6). Because we have been redeemed, we can and should live a life “…like the Holy One who called you…” (1 Peter 1:13-19). Christ purchased us with His blood, He is our Adonai so let’s continue to shine His light in our homes and with those we get to communicate with.
Love in Christ, Neil
