Monday morning clarity – 1 Chronicles 2:21-24

Here’s a new feature: On Monday morning’s I’ll give my briefest summary of what I would want to pass on to the church from yesterday’s message.

Hezron to Gilead:
Too much mixing with the world in Gilead?
Will you be taken over by it?
Hezron to Tekoa:
What can we say?
Amos was sent forth from there to call the family of God home to the Lord.
So:
Resist post-modern redefinitions of what you are worth, such as
Identity politics, and
Brand marketing groupie over-identification.
They would only use you as their possession.
Instead:
You have an interesting natural family heritage over many generations. Celebrate it!
But there is much more…
You are adopted into the household of a loving God through faith in Jesus. He made you for His best purposes and saved you at the price of His own blood. The plans of the Almighty will certainly come to pass because of Jesus, your rock-bottom identity.
There is a balm in Gilead
to make the wounded whole.
There is a balm in Gilead
to heal the sin-sick soul.
