Grafted In Christ – Today & Forever

Psalm 145:1 -I will extol thee, my God, O King: and I will bless thy name for ever and ever.

The generations continue to this day. One generation to another in the literal sense. The above verse suggests a construction of day unto day and night unto night with an emphasis on continuous praise of the Lord.

The visceral sense of being part of a Christian community and sharing in the love of the Lord is fulfilling in terms of fellowship standards. Standing shoulder to shoulder, with children of God, who are aligned in His love, is a rewarding experience for sure. We give non-stop praise to God in all that we do, every single day, such as Psalms 145:1 so eloquently states.

Ostensibly, there are the “lost” ones who are wandering aimlessly, with a vague notion that there has to be something more.  They don’t quite know what it is, but they know there is something more to this thing called “life.”

It is our obligation to go forward as dedicated followers of Christ, to bring the light into focus in His precious name. To bring life to those suffocating in the dark, and to offer them the opportunity through His name, to drink from the Living waters, and never thirst again. Ultimately, should they choose Him and accept Him as their Savior, they’ll receive the branch of life and become entwined to the vines that ultimately graft us in His love (Romans 11:22-24).

Signing praises to the One and Only Lord is a provocative peace that stimulates our senses in the full capacity in which we are designed. Singing praise to God is a blissful existence that shatters any fear or anxiety-pushing it off into oblivion.  While we sing praises, it allows us to concentrate on HIM and not on our flesh or carnal minds. Instead, it offsets our focus of “us” and provides an insight into focusing on HIM. Eventually all else falls aways as we concentrate on the One who means the most. In fact, the only One that matters at all in the big overall picture and plan of our lives.

The Word of God is sweet, as honey in our mouth. When we take the time to “digest” the Word, we become as the Father intends.  We begin to see things from a Spiritual sense, and the sour part of ourselves fall away. It is contingent upon our dedication and devotion to Him. When we give and learn and yearn for the LORD, as we sing praises and extol His name on high, everyday…we’ll be transformed into His likeness, eventually giving way to His image alone that will be reflected in all we do and are.

Psalm 119:103 How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!

Psalm 119:7 -I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments.

Psalm 119:16 -I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word.

“Father may I be a reflection of You in all I endeavor to do all the days of my life, in Jesus’ precious name, Amen.”
