Scripture reading for June 27th: Psalms 97-101
Key Scriptures: Psalm 101:6-8 “My eyes will be on the faithful in the land, that they may dwell with me; he whose walk is blameless will minister to Me. No one who practices deceit will dwell in My house; no one who speaks falsely will stand in My presence. Every morning I will put to silence all the wicked in the land; I will cut off every evildoer from the city of the Lord.”
David, King of Israel, knew that God was loving yet just. Because of this, he vowed to live a blameless life and lead the nation with integrity. He would bless the righteous and punish those doing wickedness. No evildoer would be allowed in the city of the Lord! This prefigures Jesus Christ, King of Kings, ruling Jerusalem in complete justice and righteousness and allowing no evil in the New Jerusalem!
Thankful for Jesus Christ, King of Righteousness: “And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and He will live with them. The will be His people, and God Himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” (Revelation 21:3-4)
