1 Samuel 3:1-21; Isaiah 46:1-13; 2 Corinthians 6:11-7:16
Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have
purposed, so shall it stand. Isaiah 14:24
A recurring theme throughout Scripture is God’s sovereign governance.
Entwined with His long-suffering mercy and grace is the
ultimate finality of holiness and justice. The reign of sin will come
to an end along with all of its subjects; but those who have trusted
that their own justice was enacted at Calvary will go on into everlasting
glory. Mercy and truth, righteousness and peace—they
have embraced at the cross. Have you been there for yourself?
Beneath the cross of Jesus, at times mine eye can see;
The very dying form of One who suffered there for me.
— Elizabeth Clephane
