At birth, all of us are launched into the dangerous labyrinth of the world where tragic things can and often happen. Look no further than the Ukraine presently.
Therefore, we crave safety and security. King David reminds us of the only place where true safety exists. It is in the presence of the living God who created you and rescued you by the sacrifice of his son.
As a result, we now enjoy the indwelling of the Holy Spirit who grants us this beautiful gift to lie down and truly Rest In Peace… every night of our lives as well as the final night when we wake up in glory.
Often upon the death of a prominent person in our culture, people will wish for them to R. I. P.. The only way for this to happen in reality for them and for you is to receive the Prince of peace, the Lord Jesus Christ – the Son of God and the only Savior of sinners.
Then, you can take bold risks because you know that you enjoy ultimate safety because you are in Christ and He dwells in you!
Jim Elliott was right long ago: he is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose!
