During this Covid pandemic, many people, even Christians, wish things would go back to normal, when life was easier. God’s long-range plan is much greater than to make life easy. Our need for salvation is much deeper than finding a cure for one disease. God’s salvation plan involves the formation of a new reality – a realigned reality, which is born anew through the power of his resurrection.
In our study of Psalm 50, we will discover that the God who Reigns is a loving and compassionate God. He is in control, but he is not controlling. His Kingdom and his reign are not extended by force, by manipulation, or by intimidation of any kind – it grows in the hearts and minds of those who truly love him and are willing, in gratitude, to give him all that they are and all that they have.
