“This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.”
~ Psalm 118:24
This psalm is yet another text showing that God can be trusted in his faithful character and in his saving work. Jesus Christ is our cornerstone (v.22)(Isaiah 28:16; Matthew 21:42; Romans 9:33; 1 Corinthians 3:11)…the cornerstone of our salvation (Acts 4:11-12)…the cornerstone of righteousness, refuge and strength (1 Peter 2:5-9)…the cornerstone of blessing and joy (Ephesians 2:19-22).
Slow down in your reading (or read and reread) and take note of the following themes:
- Give thanks to the LORD for he is good; his steadfast love endures forever
- The name of the LORD
- Refuge and strength / ‘right hand of the LORD’
- Salvation / set free / triumph / help
- Song / gladness / joy
Indeed this is the day that the LORD has made (v.24)!
