David Was Talking About You

“They will come and declare His righteousness to a people who will be born, that He has done this.”

Psalm 22:31

Ponder This

Who were the people that would be born? Lift your hand. Hold it up. Say, “I’m the one that He’s talking about.” David, looking down through the centuries, looked at the death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. And then he said, “It is for a people that will be born” who will say, “He has done this.” Do you know what “he has done this” means literally? It is finished. Second Chronicles 4:11 says, “Then Huram made the pots and the shovels and the bowls. So Huram finished doing the work that he was to do.” Now, where it says he “finished the work,” it’s exactly the same word used here in the phrase “he has done this.” It is the Hebrew word ossa, which means in one word, “it is finished.” And when Jesus, the Son of God, bowed His head upon Calvary’s cross, He said in one Greek word, tetelestai, which means, “It is finished.”

  • What has Jesus finished for you?
  • How would you explain this complete work of Jesus to another person?

Real Truth Never Changes

Real truth never changes, and the truth about government is that it is God who ordains it, leaders who are responsible for it, and citizens who are accountable to it. The privilege of being called Americans comes with significant responsibilities—to God, to each other, and to the world.
