Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

June 16 - Evening

"You will arise and have compassion on Zion,
for it is time to show favor to her;
the appointed time has come.
For her stones are dear to your servants;
her very dust moves them to pity.

The nations will fear the name of the Lord,
all the kings of the earth will revere your glory.
For the Lord will rebuild Zion
and appear in his glory.

He will respond to the prayer of the destitute;
he will not despise their plea.

Let this be written for a future generation,
that a people not yet created may praise the Lord:
'The Lord looked down from his sanctuary on high,
from heaven he viewed the earth,
to hear the groans of the prisoners
and release those condemned to death.'

So the name of the Lord will be declared in Zion
and his praise in Jerusalem
when the peoples and the kingdoms
assemble to worship the Lord."

- Psalms 102:13-22

Seek the Lord in Affliction    

In the midst of his affliction a man gives voice to his misery in Psalms 102:1-11. His description in these early verses proves the Lord’s words in Genesis 3:17-19 concerning the state of man’s life after the fall to be unbearable without God:

  • Days pass like smoke
  • Bones burn like a furnace
  • Heart withers like grass
  • Forgets to eat
  • Bones cling to flesh
  • Lie awake at night
  • Eat ashes like they are bread

But, instead of cursing God for this hopeless, painful condition, this psalmist reaches out to glorify the Lord because of the hope that exists in God’s very nature. This afflicted man (like all of us men) contrasts his lowly, broken condition with God’s eternal state of glory in verses 12 and 13 with an emphatic “You!” in reference to the Lord when he says:

            “But YOU, O Lord, are enthroned forever.
            YOU are remembered throughout all generations.
            YOU will arise and have pity.

Because of the Lord’s eternal state and his freedom to intervene in the chaos of human history this psalmist holds onto the hope that the Lord will arise to deliver those people who continue to hope in him. Those who care about the things that the Lord cares about (for example, Zion and Zion’s fallen stones) will see the Lord answer their prayer and set them free when the appointed time comes for the Lord to have pity on Zion and establish his kingdom.

  Christian Quote from Church History
"...God's grace and forgiveness, while free to the recipient, are always costly for the giver.... From the earliest parts of the Bible, it was understood that God could not forgive without sacrifice. No one who is seriously wronged can "just forgive" the perpetrator.... But when you forgive, that means you absorb the loss and the debt. You bear it yourself. All forgiveness, then, is costly."
- Timothy Keller
Something to Ponder??

From David Kinnaman's book
"You Lost Me"

Myth 2: Dropping out of church is just a natural part of young adults' maturation.

Reality: First, this line of reasoning ignores that tens of millions of young Christians never lose their faith or drop out of church. Thus, leaving church or losing faith should not be a foregone conclusion.

Second, leaving church has not always been normative. Evidence exists that during the first half of the 1900s, young adults were not less churched than were older adults. In fact, Boomers appear to be the first American generation that dropped out of church participation in significant numbers when they became young adults. So, in one sense, the Boomers (born between 1946 and 1964) were part of the evolution of the church dropout phenomenon during the rise of youth culture of the 1960s.

Kinnaman commented on this myth: "The significant spiritual and technological changes over the last 50 years make the dropout problem more urgent. Young people are dropping out earlier, staying away longer, and if they come back are less likely to see the church as a long-term part of their life. Today's young adults who drop out of faith are continuing something the Boomers began as a generation of spiritual free agents. Yet, today's dropout phenomenon is a more intractable, complex problem."
