A Formula for Success? Daily Bible Reading -- Psalm 50

Good Morning World!  How is it in your corner of this round globe we call home?  Are you praying for those who have been ravaged in the earthquake? What are you doing to make your world better?  Just a thought.

Psalm 50

"Whoso offers praise glorifies Me: and to him that orders his conversation aright will I show the salvation of God!"
May I present to you a key to success! This Psalm of Asaph resonates the two universal poles of spirituality.  On one hand we have the true follower of God; one to whom God is showing a better way to worship.  On the other hand we have those who live their lives in denial of God, and do nothing to please Him.  If you want to through stones - fine, yet there is really no in between.  We may try to look at life through rose colored glasses, but the fact still remains there is right and there is wrong.

One thing that struck me as interestingly wonderful in this chapter, was the fact that the writer is prophecying about the time of Jesus Christ and His relationship with humanity through the institution of the Church.  God will no longer accept the bloody sacrifices that was required, rather He is looking for a heart of worship.  Jesus is looking for true worshipers who are willing to follow and He will deliver you from you troubles!

On the other hand we have God severely judging those who have refused to follow Him, and have gone their own way.  It is interesting that prophet writes these words:
"These things you have done, and I kept in silence; you thought that I was altogether such an one as yourself: but I will reprove you, and set them in order before thine eyes."
This verse describes how many people feel about God.  Either He doesn't exist because He isn't punishing me or He doesn't care what I do.  Well I'm afraid one day your thine bubble will be burst!  One day God will reprove all sin and those who commit sin.  It may be today for you or it may be down the road, but rest assured one day all those who don't follow Jesus will be reproved!

What is the hurry you say?  Time isn't your friend, and the only reason you have time is because Jesus is giving you time to make the right decision.  Jesus is giving you opportunities to repent and turn from your current path of destruction toward the path of Life!  We have laid before you a choice.  We have given you a formula for true success.  Give it to Jesus and follow Him or go it alone, and fall into a terrible trap called sin!  The choice is yours; life or death.

Yours for true Success,
Pastor Fred
