“The Lord bless you and keep you.” Numbers 6:24

Well, this is it! Last day of exams, last day of school, and last GMU (until next August!) I want to leave you with the famous Old Testament priestly blessing:

“The Lord bless you and keep you,

The Lord make His face shine on you and be gracious unto you,

The Lord lift of his countenance upon you and give you peace.”

Or paraphrased by me this morning:

May your growth with Jesus this school year be a constant blessing to you, and may is sustain  you through the summer.

“Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.”                Philippians 2: 12

This could make a good test question—How do you “work out your own salvation?” I thought it wasn’t about works!? That’s like memorizing one fact and trying to answer all questions on a test with one part of an answer. Read the chapter!! Understand the whole big picture! Or, in this case, read the whole verse!

“In your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give a reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience.”            1 Peter 3:15-16

Just reviewing this psalm that I learned a long time ago. There is so much in it.

1.       Blessed also means happy! I’ll be happy when

a.       My transgressions are forgiven

b.      My sins are covered

“Pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words.”              Proverbs 4:20

I was reminded last night, at the CVA constituency meeting, of the importance of focusing on that which is MOST important. Solomon had many bits of wisdom, maybe from all his experience with messing life up, that I can take advantage of SO THAT I don’t have to repeat his failures. This piece is SO important that he stresses it four times:

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ he is a new creature…” 2 Corinthians 5:17 When I am “in Christ” it will be evident. I say that as a work-in-progress; a journey; a process, not as a perfect end product. I will be a “new creature.” And Paul defines that “new creature” in this way: 1. The old has gone 2. The new has come
