Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
In the way of righteousness there is life; along that path is immortality.
Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived, promoted RIGHTEOUSNESS as a way to eternal life over THERE and Legacy or Immortality on THIS side of heaven. In other words, a righteous man’s name lives on through others, here on earth, long after he has physically passed away.
In Solomon’s day there hadn’t been a means of salvation through faith in Jesus. Jesus had not yet come and laid down His life for our sins. In Solomon’s day it was the promise of heaven through “Good Works.” Obviously the “Good Works Plan” didn’t work. Every human being needs the salvation of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit in order to live the “Abundant Life” God has planned for us. Yet, every person who determines to live a righteous life through the saving grace of Jesus will have eternal life over THERE forever. But even while they’re here on earth, they impact so many folks, including their own families, that long after they’re gone they continue to influence the generations that follow after them. Solomon called it “Immortality,” we call it “Legacy.” God said, “If you will love Me and obey Me I will bless a 1,000 generations of those who follow after you (Exodus 20:6, paraphrase). So why not choose today to live Righteous by God’s Grace. If you do, you will experience … “Life, Both HERE and Over THERE!”
Because of Your “Saving Grace” in my life, it is my honor to yield to Your Will and Way. I know that YOU know what’s best for me. Amen
