Many churches throughout the world use a Bible reading schedule called a "lectionary." It's just a fancy word meaning "selected readings." Posts like this reflect on the readings for an upcoming Sunday or other Church holiday, as found in the three-year lectionary.
There’s a perfect safety and comfort that comes from living as a Christian. Really? Recent figures show that in 2016 about 90,000 people died for their Christian faith. That doesn’t exactly sound safe. Yet, in eternal terms, the Christian has a confidence in God as the redeemer. Dwelling in the house of the Lord, as described in Psalm 27:4, is a place of peace, rest, and shelter. This is where no enemies can reach us. It is the place where all the temporal troubles we face pass away.
If we confess that the LORD is the savior of the world, why are we so ready to flee when troubled? Rather, may we look to him in trust. He is the one who calls us to seek his face (Psalm 27:8). Our response is to trust that he is the savior.
