Focus Verse of the Week
Then we your people, the sheep of your pasture, will praise you forever; from generation to generation we will recount your praise. (Psalm 79:13)
"Then we your people, the sheep of your pasture, will praise you forever; from generation to generation we will recount your praise." The gratitude of the church is lasting as well as deep. On her tablets are memorials of great deliverances, and, as long as she shall exist, her sons will rehearse them with delight. We have a history which will survive all other records, and it is bright in every line with the glory of the Lord. From the direst calamities God's glory springs, and the dark days of his people become the prelude to unusual displays of the Lord's love and power.
(Adapted from The Treasury of David, Psalm 79)
A Thought to Keep
The Christian life cannot be isolated from the wonderful history of the whole Church. We can rejoice not just in God's faithfulness to us, but to his people throughout time.
