Word Wednesday is posted every Wednesday. Each week I post a scripture that I've read that week that has spoken to me in a fresh way. I believe that if we read God's Word every day, He will give us at least one scripture every week that will impact us. My hope is to see others comment and share a scripture that they have read.
Right now, I'm in the Psalms, which is great stuff for a worship leader. I've read several really cool verses, but the scripture that has stuck out to me the most this week is:
Psalm 92:12-15 ESV
12 The righteous flourish like the palm tree and grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
13 They are planted in the house of the Lord; they flourish in the courts of our God.
14 They still bear fruit in old age; they are ever full of sap and green,
15 to declare that the Lord is upright; he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.
We're going through a series at our church about the fruit of the Spirit in Galatians. When I read this, verse 14 popped out at me, especially the line "They still bear fruit in old age...". Am I bearing fruit right now? That's the question I need to ask myself everyday until I die. Then verse 15 explains why we live righteously, "to declare that the Lord is upright...". It all comes back to worship and giving God glory. I keep finding that reason throughout scripture. I've got to live right to show off my God and not myself.
What's your Word?
