Do you have something in your family that has come down from generations? If you do, you surely treat it with great reverence. At a great celebration, we were awed by the presence of a Bible that John Wesley, the 18th century founder of the Methodists, had given to Francis Asbury. Francis was a vibrant preacher in the early years of the United States.
King David gets very excited about the Ark of the Covenant, the precious symbol of God’s presence from the days of the Exodus. It is a chest that contains the tablets of the Ten Commandments and the special rod of Aaron. Plans are arranged to have the Ark brought to a more special place of reverence. On the way, David is so happy that he leads God’s people into a dance before the Ark; the air is filled with joyous music to accompany them.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we would get excited about the life we have with Jesus? Maybe we’d even dance at worship!
Tuesdays are dedicated to the the History and Writings
of the Hebrew Scriptures.
