Devotions for Lent. March 16

I’ll fill you full with old age. I’ll show you my salvation.” (Psa 91:16-92:1 CEB)

This last line of Psalm 91 may seem insignificant, but it probably has more to say that all the other verses.

Salvation reveals something about the nature of God. First, it shows the love of God.  God pours the essence of Godself into human flesh, being totally man and totally God, to redeem mankind from the effects and consequences of sin.

Second, salvation shows God grace. The Orthodox view of the nature of Grace is that it is the very energies of God Himself. Through the Trinitarian ministry of the Holy Spirit–a ministry involving both general and special activities–these energies are mediated to mankind. Perhaps this is that life and life more abundantly.

Finally, the holiness of God is manifest through the work of the cross. The barrier that once separated us has been removed. The relationship and fellowship with God restored, and we are, and we’re being the holy people of God.
