Psalm 22:3 Yet You are holy,
You who are enthroned [You inhabit] the praises of Israel.
So, what does this verse actually mean? We understand God to be ever present, all knowing, Patient, forgiving, compassionate, and beautiful beyond compare. When you take all of that into consideration and lean from this verse that He is comfortable enough among a people who praise Him to sit down with them and watch perhaps even more closely over them.
Think about it. What is the atmosphere around and within your home? Is it one of praise to God, is it one of welcoming and love? Are you compelled by that love to forgive and seek forgiveness all the while raising the banner of Christ’s love as the reason for all you do?
The reason I am writing this today is because I am concerned for my grandchildren and all, who are even as I write soaking in the soul pickling perversion that has become the “whatever” culture with regard to personal choices, from cheating to sexuality and everything in between.
It is not enough to give children the “right to choose”. How many times have I heard bitter shriveled up people tell me that they can’t be bothered to take their children in hand and take responsibility for their spiritual development because they were “forced to go to Church” when they were young, or the other excuse is that the church is full of phonies and hypocrites.
I’ll not defend the Church in the face of these complaints. My response is that “you should feel right at home among folks just like you. Jesus will meet you wherever you are. I think I would like Him to feel comfortable enough that He would take up His throne and flavor the atmosphere all around me. The real problem we all face is the “whatever” syndrome which looks for any reason to do nothing and “let the chips fall” where they may.
