The Lord Be With You Today!
Come, all you beasts of the field, come and devour, all you beasts of the forest!
(After His open and welcoming invitation to both Israel and Gentile peoples,
in an unremitting and unrelenting rebuke to those
who do not choose to accept His invitation to His Kingdom,
as well as to His own people who refuse to repent and obey Him,
as He foretells their utter destruction if they continue in disobedience,
He also invites the nations to come to a feast of victory over His people
as part of the correction He has chosen for them
and for those who intentionally and persistently
turn away from the Lord’s great mercy and salvation.
For us, how often we assume we will never be held accountable,
that life will always continue as it always has,
that we will experience no consequences
for our continued disobedience and rebellion against God’s ways,
when, in fact, the Lord inevitably will bring us either into His salvation
or into the discipline and correction that our disobedience dictates,
and, today, the choice is ours.)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ’s love,
