Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

June 24 - Morning

"My heart is not proud, Lord,
my eyes are not haughty;
I do not concern myself with great matters
or things too wonderful for me.
But I have calmed and quieted myself,
I am like a weaned child with its mother;
like a weaned child I am content.
Israel, put your hope in the Lord
both now and forevermore."

- Psalms 131

The Man of Hubris vs The Man of Faith    

This brief psalm (Psalm 131) is powerful and precise in its brilliant focus on the importance of faith in God while at the same time avoiding the folly of arrogance and self-reliance.

The arrogant man who operates in hubris will get himself in over his head in life. He will overrate his own importance and ability concerning his career, finances, speech, commitments, ministry, etc. In an attempt to control situations and manipulate the outcomes the hubris within a man will cause that same man to set himself up for failure. This is spoken of in verse one.

To the contrary, the man of faith can engage life with confidence in God and with reasonable expectations of himself. This is portrayed in verse two. The composed man has quieted his soul by recognizing his abilities while simultaneously trusting the Lord’s commitment to accomplish the great things in life.

  Christian Quote from Church History

Charles V (1500-1558) King of Spain, Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire answered Martin Luther at the Diet of Worms on April 19, 1521:

"A single friar who goes counter to all Christianity for a thousand years must be wrong!"

Something to Ponder??

The kenosis of Philippians 2:7 teaches that while Christ maintained the full position, attributes and knowledge of his deity, Christ also did these things when he became a man:

1.Took on full humanity. This taking on of humanity was not simply a thirty-three year commitment but was for the rest of eternity (1 Timothy 2:5)

2. Veiled his divine glory, which resulted in men not recognizing him as God. Isaiah indicated this in Isaiah 53:2 when he says, “He had no beauty or majesty (hadar –glory)” when he came as a servant. Note that, according to Isaiah 63:1, Jesus’ glory will not be veiled when he returns: “Who is this, robed in splendor (hadar – glory)”. Men did not see his glory but demons clearly could (Luke 4:34), although the disciples did see his glory on the Mount of Transfiguration (Matthew 17:2-5; 2 Peter 1:16-18)

3. Voluntarily eschewed use of his divine attributes and authority for personal benefit (like turning stones into bread, floating off the temple pinnacle, or taking over the world system)
The main point of the kenosis is that Jesus left the condition he was in before the Incarnation, took on full humanity, and became a servant to man. We know that Jesus continued to be God and continued to use his divine attributes, because he demonstrated omniscience (Matthew 12:25; Luke 6:8), omnipresence (John 1:48-49) and omnipotence (John 11:43).

The Three Shekels Ostracon became public after being found on the antiquities market in the 1990’s. This ostracon (a broken piece of pottery with writing on it) is a receipt for three shekels of silver that were donated to the Temple in Jerusalem (Solomon’s) which is identified as “the House of Yahweh” in the inscription that comes from 900-600 BC. The pottery, the ink, the language, the lettering and the patina have all been examined and accepted as authentic.
The inscription says:
“As Ashyahu the king commanded you to give into the hand of [Ze]chariah silver of Tarshish for the House of Yahweh: three shekels.”
The King Ashyahu could be King Josiah (Jehoash) since the Hebrew is similar in form for both names. Josiah had a temple official named Zechariah who was stoned to death by Josiah orders after Zechariah gave him a prophetic word from the Lord in 2 Chronicles 24:20-22.
