psalm 103… and Easter perspective… part twelve…

Nearing the end of Psalm 103
continuing to view it from the empty tomb…
verses 17 and 18…

But from everlasting to everlasting
the Lord’s love is with those who fear him,
and his righteousness with their children’s children—
with those who keep his covenant
and remember to obey his precepts.
Psalm 103:17-18

Everlasting to everlasting…
it’s not about others remembering our place in this world when we’re gone…
it’s about us remembering our place before Him…
When we remember who we are… 
short-lived dust…
and whose we are… 
God’s…
He remembers us… loves us…
into eternity… 

Jesus made the Way for us to be remembered…
for us to be established eternally…
as children… heirs… of the Creator…
Again… fear of the Lord… understanding who we are… and who we are before our Creator… is the key to receiving… accepting His love… His righteousness…
We must remember His precepts… 
keep His covenant…
in order to be kept eternally…
This is all made possible… when we know Jesus…
fall in love with Him… 
on account of what He’s done for us…
and follow Him…
The man who says, “I know him,”
but does not do what he commands is a liar,
and the truth is not in him.
But if anyone obeys his word, God’s love is truly
made complete in him. This is how we know
we are in him: Whoever claims to live in him
must walk as Jesus did.
1 John 2:4-6
When we live out His love for us through obedience…
our children… our children’s children…
see and know the Truth…
His righteousness is with those who know Him…
not just go through the motions…
not just check the boxes… church… devotional… prayer…
not just follow the rules…
Those who know Him love Him all day long…
in all sorts of ways… 
and those ways… infiltrate the hearts of those around us…
from everlasting… to everlasting…
generation… to generation…
Do you love Him…?
Do you know who you are before Him…?
Do you know who He is…? and what He’s done for you…?

Everlasting to everlasting…
the Lord’s love… is not a box to check…
it’s a relationship to enter in…
child to Father…
servant to Lord…
beloved to the Lover of our souls…
Father God… grow me to love You…
with all my heart… soul… mind… and strength…
I desire Your love… from everlasting to everlasting…
