Daily Easter Devotion Wednesday, May 15th

Wednesday, May 15, 2013 – Psalm 118; Ezekiel 11:14-25; Hebrews 7:1-17 and Luke 10:17-24

As we near the end of the season of Easter, Psalm 118 is a great reminder of all that God has done and is doing for us through his Son, Jesus Christ.

Psalm 118 – 1   O give thanks to the LORD, for he is good;
his steadfast love endures forever! ….

8   It is better to take refuge in the LORD
than to put confidence in mortals.
9   It is better to take refuge in the LORD
than to put confidence in princes.

All the mortals and all princes shall fail, but God’s steadfast love endures forever and ever and ever.

14  The LORD is my strength and my might;
he has become my salvation. ….

Thanks be to God that our salvation comes through God.

19  Open to me the gates of righteousness,
that I may enter through them
and give thanks to the LORD.

20  This is the gate of the LORD;
the righteous shall enter through it.

Jesus Christ, God’s Son, is the gate of righteousness. All are invited to enter, but few choose to come. God has flung wide the gates, may we enter through Christ and give all thanks unto God.

21  I thank you that you have answered me
and have become my salvation.
22  The stone that the builders rejected
has become the chief cornerstone.
23  This is the LORD’s doing;
it is marvelous in our eyes.

Jesus was arrested, tried and crucified. He was rejected, yet has now become our chief cornerstone because he rose from the dead and ascended unto the right hand of God. Thanks be to God for this one who was rejected, yet is now our great high eternal priest.

24  This is the day that the LORD has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it.

This is the day that that Lord is making, may we rejoice and be glad throughout it.

25  Save us, we beseech you, O LORD!
O LORD, we beseech you, give us success! …

28  You are my God, and I will give thanks to you;
you are my God, I will extol you.

29  O give thanks to the LORD, for he is good,
for his steadfast love endures forever.

God’s steadfast love endures forever and ever and ever. Thanks and praise be to God now and forever. Amen.
