I have often been in wonder how daily or Sunday scripture readings fit the current day. So, it is for the assigned readings for this day in the program I am following.
Matt. 24: 5, For many will come in my name saying, ‘I am the Christ (Chosen One, Messiah), and they will lead many away…’ V. 23, Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There he is!’ do not believe it.
Psalm 51 is also assigned for today in which we read, “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from your presence and take not your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and uphold me with a willing spirit.
There is only one who is the Chosen One even Jesus Christ our Lord. He is the God of my salvation and to him “my tongue will sing aloud of your righteousness.” To Jesus Christ we pray, “O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare your praise.”
