As a sinner saved by grace, I plead with you: Don’t be familiar with the Word of God or the work of God. Don’t be familiar with the men and women He has raised up to be His servants. Allow the Word of His righteousness to become a fire burning in your bones.
Every morning I take my wife’s hand, and we begin our day by praising God. We confess His blessings and promises. We pray for people because we live as if every day could be our last.
This is the most magnificent time of my life. Oh, that God would teach our tongues to speak of His righteousness all the day long (Psalm 71:24). By His righteousness we are exalted and we grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ. The Word makes it clear that His righteousness is our shield. We are so blessed.
