What is your heritage and how do you despise it? Heritage is the status, conditions or character acquired by being into a particular family or social class. It is something that passes from one generation to the next. As a Christian, your heritage by virtue of belonging to the family of Christ is a great one. David in Psalms begins to give us an understanding of what our heritage is. He says, “the LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot. The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage”. 1 Peter 1:3-5 sheds more light. “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time”.

Zechariah 1:7, “Upon the four and twentieth day of the eleventh month, which is the month Sebat, in the second year of Darius, came the word of the LORD unto Zechariah, the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo the prophet, saying…“

But the satisfaction of the righteous lies in beholding the face of God in righteousness, awaking in the next life in His likeness. Continue reading “A Medley”
I take a lollipop when I need a burst of energy. I like that it is chic and goes with any style any day. With the end of the stick outside my mouth, I become a child again.
When the thoughts of my head become too much to bear, it is a welcomed and delight-some distraction. It takes away the worries and makes me feel like a child again.
I know I am all grown up and I probably should quit acting like a child. But what can I say when my Bible tells me that “Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven”.
And again, “Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven”.
I guess then that being a child again is a good thing. Especially a cherished child of God. I will remind myself of these bible truths when next I take a lollipop.
What can I do to show my love for you my Lord?
Maybe a little gift for my Lord?
Perhaps a little shout of praise for my Lord?
Or maybe a little smile for my Lord?
Ah yes! A little caper like that of king David should do my Lord.
Thy right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power;
Thy right hand, O LORD, hath dashed in pieces the enemy.
Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron;
Thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.
Exodus 15:6, Psalm 2:9
