Week 28, 2022

Week Twenty-eight of Cultivate Delight, where we are actively planning our spiritual endeavors this coming week with the goal of a consistent time spent engaging our hearts with Christ in his word, in prayer, in reflection, and in music. Below are some starting points for reflection, and I hope you find them helpful. The goal is to not just rush through these and then get on with your day. Take your time and reflect throughout the week on these items.

“It’s God’s just judgment on all who do not receive his truth in love, to give them up to walk in their own counsels.”
― Thomas Hodges, The Growth and Spreading of Heresy

Question 28: What happens after death to those not united to Christ by faith?

At the day of judgment they will receive the fearful but just sentence of condemnation pronounced against them. They will be cast out from the favorable presence of God, into hell, to be justly and grievously punished, forever.

John 3:16–18, 36
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God… Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.

Perfect Wisdom of Our God – Keith & Kristyn Getty

Perfect Wisdom of Our God

[Verse 1]
The perfect wisdom of our God
Revealed in all the universe
All things created by His hand
And held together at His command

He knows the mysteries of the seas
The secrets of the stars are His
He guides the planets on their way
And turns the earth through another day

[Verse 2]
The matchless wisdom of His ways
That mark the path of righteousness
His Word a lamp unto my feet
His Spirit teaching and guiding me

And oh, the mystery of the cross
That God should suffer for the lost
So that the fool might shame the wise
And all the glory might go to Christ

[Verse 3]
Oh, grant me wisdom from above
To pray for peace and cling to love
And teach me humbly to receive
The sun and rain of Your sovereignty

Each strand of sorrow has a place
Within this tapestry of grace
So through the trials I choose to say
“Your perfect will in Your perfect way”

[Outro]
Each strand of sorrow has a place
Within this tapestry of grace
So through the trials I choose to say
“Your perfect will in Your perfect way”
