Psalm 33:20-22

“We put our hope in the LORD.
He is our help and our shield.
In Him our hearts rejoice,
for we trust in His holy name.
Let Your unfailing love surround us, LORD,
for our hope is in You alone.”
Psalm 33:20-22 (NLT)

Sympathy

A little hand stole softly
Into my own that day
When it needed the touch that I loved so much
To strengthen me on the way.
It seemed to say in a strange, sweet way,
“I love you, and understand;”
And calmed my fears as my hot heart-tears
Fell over that little hand.
Perhaps there are tenderer, sweeter things
Somewhere in the sun-bright land,
But I thank God for his blessing
In the clasp of that little hand.

A New Life

“But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof.” Romans 13:14 (KJV)
“The obvious meaning, therefore, of the words ‘Put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ,’ is, assume the character of the lord Jesus Christ. The putting on the new man is the counterpart of the putting off the old man, and what that is Paul explains when he says, ‘that ye put off concerning the former conversation–that is, concerning your former way of life–the old man, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind’ (Eph. 3:22, 23). Our old ways and character are to be laid aside, and therefore to put on the new man is to assume a new character and new ways. To put on the Lord Jesus Christ is to make our own His character.” – Marcus Dods, D.D.
“. . . put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.” Ephesians 3:24 (KJV)
