David Jeremiah Daily Devotional 9th June 2022 MESSAGE
A family in Lansing, Michigan, was cleaning their aunt’s home when they found what seemed to be a live round of ammunition, something that looked like a torpedo. The bomb squad came and determined it was a World War I round that had been cleaned out and was stuffed with old money, silver certificates, coins from the late 1800s, and currency from the early 1900s. Their torpedo was a treasure!
The Bible is God’s armory, and it’s full of His commands. Sometimes we feel threatened by the commandments. We love God’s promises, and we relish His descriptions of Jesus Christ. However, Scripture also contains instructions for living. But within each commandment is a treasure, for God never tells us to do something unless: (1) It’s for our good, and (2) He gives us the enabling grace to obey it.
God’s commands are His words of love to us. We should treasure them.
Joy is like oil to the wheels, which makes a Christian run in the way of God’s commandments, so that they are not burdensome. Thomas Watson
