Today is the first of four days to read the selection from Psalm 22. This is a song of praise to God. We also begin several days of readings relating to Abraham’s faith and the later use the Apostle Paul made of that example. We will be reminded of the strength of Abraham’s faith (trust and loyalty) to God, but even more strongly reminded of God’s faithfulness in covenant with Abraham and his descendants. We are reminded that we who are Abraham’s spiritual descendants rest not in our own faithfulness, but in God’s.
