But of Zion, it will be said, “This one and that one were born in her,”
And the Most High Himself will establish her.
The LORD will count, when He registers the peoples,
“This one was born there.” Selah.
The singers, as well as the players of flutes, will say,
“All my springs and sources of joy are in you [Jerusalem, city of God]” (Psalms 87:5-7).
In scripture, there are multiple references to “The son of ____” but, that does not always mean, “a direct familial relationship”. What is often meant by the statement is that the individual exhibits personal character traits that were exhibited by the person referenced. Consider the case of Jesus, he was called “the Son of G_d” when no one had ever seen the face of G_d but they did know the Torah which spoke about the characteristics of Yahweh G_d through the eyes of David King of Israel and knew this man was authentic because he lived what he preached. In the same way, when we are called by the name of Christ not because of the name we affixed to our life but by the way we live our life.
Help me today to walk in obedience to you that the way I live my life does not betray my Lord but that he will call me faithful. May your good Spirit guide me and lead me today. Please be with my families, my Law Enforcement Officers, EMT staff, teachers, preachers, and the military members local and abroad while they are in the line of duty. I pray for my city of Stacy, the state of Minnesota, and my nation.
