So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
Ephesians 2:10 NASB
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them. We only get one body, do you think we should take good care of it? How are you taking care of your body?
1 Corithians 19-20 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own?For you have been bought for a price: therefore glorify God in your body.
If you know me, you know that my main goal is to serve the LORD with all my strength, all my might, all my heart and all my mind. If you do not know me then know you know that is my main goal. Why is it my main goal? Because God commands us to do just that in
Matthew 22:36-38 NASB
“Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?”And He said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’This is the great and foremost commandment.
Also in Deuteronomy 6:5 plus many more scriptures.
When Jesus says that the great commandment in the Law is to Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind, then I know that is the truth. That is why I strive to do just that.

Week 8 of 52 Weeks of Devotionals by Shelia~s Notes as we are studying Jesus through the entire Bible~Genesis to Revelation
This weeks devotional will be looking at Some Psalm passages and how they tie into New Testament passages about Jesus.
The Reign of the LORD’s Anointed ~The Son of God
Psalm 2:7 “I will surely tell of the decree of the LORD: He said to Me, ‘You are My Son, Today I have begotten You. Acts 13:33 That God has fulfilled this promise to our children in that He raised up Jesus, as it is also written in the second Psalm, ‘YOU ARE MY SON; TODAY I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU.’ God predicted the coming of His Son way back in Psalm 2:7. The writer of Acts tells of the fulfilled promise about Jesus.
Jesus the Messiah would be despised and crucified and hated without cause:
Luke 23:13-22(please read) Pilate Seeks Jesus’ Release: But the anger crowd wanted Jesus killed.
Verse 22 And he said to them the third time, “Why, what evil has this man done? I have found in Him no guilt demanding death; therefore I will punish Him and release Him”
Verse 23 But they were insistent, with loud voices asking that He be crucified. And their voices began to prevail.
Matthew 27: 35 When they had crucified Him, they divided up His garments among themselves by casting lots. Verse 46 About the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying ELI, ELI, LAMA SABACHTHANI? that is, ‘MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?” also found in Psalm 22:1
This is not the end of the story: Jesus died for the world’s sins (John 3:16-17) but He also was raised and He lives.
Acts 13:30-38(please read) But God raised Him from the dead; and for many days He appeared to those who came up with Him from Galilee to Jerusalem the very ones who are now His witnesses to the people. And we preach to you the good news of the promise made to the fathers, that God has fulfilled this promise to our children in that He raised up Jesus. But He whom God raised did not undergo decay. Therefore let it be known to you, brethren, that through Him forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you,
Jesus the Messiah would be Lord at the Right Hand of God:
Psalm 110:4 -5 The LORD has sworn and will not change His mind, “You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek. The Lord is at Your right hand;
Then in 1 Peter 3:21:22 Corresponding to that, baptism now saves you—-not the removal of dirt from the flesh, but an appeal to God for a good conscience—through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who is at the right hand of God, having gone into heaven, after angels and authorities and powers had been subjected to Him.
Psalm 61:1-2 Hear my cry, O God; Give heed to my prayer. From the end of the earth I call to You when my heart is faint; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
Psalm 62:1-8 My soul waits in silence for God only; From Him is my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation, My stronghold; I shall not be greatly shaken.
My soul, waits in silence for God only, For my hope is from Him. He only is my rock and my salvation, My stronghold, I shall not be greatly shaken.
On God my salvation and my glory rest; The rock of my strength, my refuge is in God. Trust in Him at all times, O people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us.
Lots to think about this week. Be sure to open your Bible and read all the passages and see if you can find other passages that go along with these. Thanks for stopping in and reading this. Please leave a commit. Would love to hear from you.
Have a blessed day. It is icy here in May Town as I type this. Stay safe and warm
