HOW CAN OUR PEOPLE FIND THE WORD AGAIN? Under the direction of King Josiah, the Levites were repairing the Temple when they found the Book of the Law. Hilkiah the priest was the one who found it. Apparently, it had been hidden in the Temple to avoid destruction by some of the wicked kings that

“I know that when I come to you, I shall come in the fullness of the blessing of the gospel of Christ” (Romans 15:29 NKJV).

DO YOU KNOW THE FULLNESS OF GOSPEL BLESSING? As the apostle Paul concluded his epistle to the Romans, he expressed his great desire to come and visit with them. He didn’t know when he would be able to come to Rome. He hoped to one day carry the gospel to Spain and stop off at

“There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus” (Romans 8:1 NKJV).

ARE YOU “IN” CHRIST JESUS? When judgment fell on the earth during the great flood, only those “in” the Ark were saved. The rain of God’s wrath fell on the Ark, but Noah and his family were kept safe inside. This is a foreshadowing of Christ. For Christ Jesus is our Ark. There is no

“But now we have been delivered from the law, having died to what we were held by, so that we should serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter.” (Romans 7:6 NKJV).

THE NEW WAY OF SERVING IN THE SPIRIT We don’t serve God by following a checklist, but by living under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Legalism does not please God as it only reveals our unrighteousness and prideful hearts. This new way of living is not about effort or earning, but believing and receiving.

“For You will not leave my soul in Sheol, nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption” (Psalm 16:10 NKJV).

PETER’S FIRST SERMON TEXT This psalm of David was quoted by the apostle Peter (Acts 2:25-36) as a biblical proof that Jesus Christ, Son of David, was prophesied to rise from the dead without seeing “corruption.” Peter preached this sermon on the day of Pentecost and 3,000 Jews from all over the world came to

‘And David said to his son Solomon, “Be strong and of good courage, and do it; do not fear nor be dismayed, for the Lord God—my God—will be with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you, until you have finished all the work for the service of the house of the Lord”‘ (1 Chronicles 28:20 NKJV).

THREE LEADERSHIP PRINCIPLES AND ONE PROMISE David gave his son, Solomon, instructions on how to build the Lord’s Temple. Along with the building instructions, David gave him three important spiritual leadership principles and one promise. This three-part instruction with a promise is found throughout Scripture (See Joshua 1:9, Haggai 2:4-5).   THE THREE PRINCIPLES: 1.

“He who has pity on the poor lends to the Lord, and He will pay back what he has given” (Proverbs 19:17 NKJV).

GOD IS DEBTOR TO THE ONE WHO GIVES TO THE POOR This is an astounding proverb! God willingly makes Himself a debtor to the one who shows pity on the poor, giving to them. Someone may hesitate to give to a poor person, but who would not lend to the Lord? Surely the One who

“being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood” (Romans 3:24-25 NKJV).

MEDITATION ON THE REDEMPTION AND PROPITIATION OF CHRIST Two important words concerning salvation are named here: “Redemption” and “propitiation.” Redemption means that we have been purchased out of slavery to sin by Christ, who gave Himself as our ransom. He took our sin, so that we might receive His righteousness. Propitiation means that Christ satisfied

“I am in great distress. Please let me fall into the hand of the Lord, for His mercies are very great; but do not let me fall into the hand of man” (1 Chronicles 21:13 NKJV).

RELYING ON GOD’S GREAT MERCY When David sinned against the Lord by calling for a census of Israel, the prophet Gad brought a word of warning to him from the Lord. God was going to judge Israel because of David’s sin, but He allowed David to choose from three possible judgments. David chose to put

“You, therefore, who teach another, do you not teach yourself?” (Romans 2:21 NKJV).

DOES YOUR WALK MATCH YOUR TALK? Paul warned those who taught the Word of God about the hypocrisy of applying it to others without first applying it to themselves. For just knowing God’s Word does not make one just. For it is the “doers of the law that will be justified” (Rom. 2:13). Therefore, teachers
