Hymn 109: The King of Truth
· David often planned and prepared for important events – he was motivated by a feeling in his heart!
· When David first wanted to bring the Ark of God “home” he was confronted by God’s Judgment!
· We need to recognise God’s grace, but also prepare to meet His requirement for righteousness!
· The Foolish Virgins had not undertaken adequate preparation for the task they were to carry out
· As we think of the birth of the Saviour, and see how God had planned the end from the beginning, let us recognise the importance of praising and following God in our lives
· If we prepare by offering a sacrifice of righteousness to God, He will give us the gift of life through His Son Jesus Christ.
