Our Help

3 03 2009

Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth (Psalm 124:8).

1. These words, John Calvin (1550) chose, as the sentence to commence the weekly worship service. 

2. What sort of help do we have? …. All sorts.

3. Immediately prior to this verse,we read of the snare being broken, by the Lord: The snare is broken and we have escaped.

4. The enormous freedom given to a person, by Christ, is full and free. Such freedom is difficult to comprehend. explain or fathom. 

5. The power of the resurrected Christ Jesus, is bearing down upon us, enabling us to freely choose freedom, as our way of life.

6. We don’t use snares, much in our society, to catch birds and so on. But, in our society, there are so many snares, for human beings to wander into. How vast the freedom of being the object of Christ’s grace, breaking the snare of death—and delivering us from all the stupid ways we use, foolishly, to secure ourselves from it. 

7. Today, I am once again, conscious of the Lord’s help. Are you?
