Psalms And The Messiah


Dear Friend,      

  

Don’t you just love the book of Psalms? It’s one of my favorite books in the Bible. The primary purpose of Psalms’ is to give us divinely inspired models or patterns of how to:

pray to God,

praise God,

and meditate on God,

in response to all God has done for us. In many cases the Psalms clearly refer to the coming messianic King.

In fact, the New Testament writers quote from Psalms more than any other Old Testament book.  In Acts 2:25-36, Peter quotes Psalm  16:8-11 and Psalm 110:1, connecting both Psalms to Jesus the Messiah. For that reason, I chose Psalm 16:8 as our theme verse for this month’s Box of Blessings:

I keep my eyes always on the Lord. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.

What a great “go-to” verse! And what a great verse for this month’s Box. I can’t wait to tell you about the special gift that is in this month’s Box. But first…

I am so very excited to include in this month’s Box, Psalms of the Bible – The Songs of Scripture in Both Contemporary (the highly readable, highly reliable text of the Christian Standard Bible) and Classic Form (the classic King James Version). The two versions together ensures a rich and reflective immersion into God’s Word. The flexible LeatherTouch cover style with easy-to-read type makes this an extra-ordinary gift. It even has a ribbon marker!

The CD, Awake In The Dawn– Songs for Morning Prayer, is a wonderful way to start a day and actually comes with a free 365 day digital devotional. Not only will this CD draw you closer to God, but the proceeds from this CD goes towards supporting Hope Villages for children and youth. Village2Village is a non-profit organization whose vision and mission is to inspire and build cultures of hope through Christ for under-supported children. The process for accomplishing this vision is the establishment of campuses called Hope Village. You can learn more about this ministry at village2village.co.

You know that friend that needs a little encouragement? Within the pack of ten Christian encouragement cards you are going to find the perfect card to send her that will truly bless and encourage her. (Don’t wait…send it today!)

In his book, God In His Own Image, Syd Brestel challenges us to see God as He truly is, both Lion and Lamb, both kind and severe…and perfect in every way. This book will help you see Him as He truly is, instead of creating a god in our mind where it is easy for us to reject attributes of God that make us feel uncomfortable or we find difficult to explain.  In chapter 1 Syd writes: “God has revealed Himself up close and personal through His Son, Jesus of Nazareth. He is the perfect reflection of God. Consider Jesus’ own words: ‘If you knew Me, you would know the Father also.’ (John 8:19)”

Do you know Him? Do you want to know Him? Do you want others to know Him?Well, here’s the special gift I mentioned earlier…

There’s a small, pocket-size book in your Box of Blessings that has a nondescript cover. The title of the book is The Life and Teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, and it’s a compilation of scripture in the Easy-to-Read Version.This book is an amazing way for someone to encounter God just by reading about the life and teachings of Jesus, as recorded in the Bible. 

Our friends at Plus Nothing are offering this to you as a free gift. Plus Nothing is a faith based non-profit organization determined to get The Life and Teachings of Jesus of Nazarethin as many people’s hands as possible so that they can discover Jesus and the transformative peace He brings to those who commit their lives to Him.  The final page explains how you can freely get more copies to give to friends, acquaintances, loved ones…anyone who needs to hear the Good News. They only ask that you personally distribute the copies that they give you.

Wow! What a blessing! I pray that you’ll find the contents of this month’s Box as exciting as I found them. One of the enclosed encouragement cards says exactly what I want to say to you…from my heart to yours:

“You’re one of those people who makes the world better simply by being in it.

You’re one of those people who’s a blessing simply because you’re you.”

Thank you for being a part of Bette’s Box of Blessings and for loving others.

With our eyes firmly fixed on our Lord,

Bette

P.S. Not including the free gift-book, the retail value of this month’s Box of Blessings is $86.37!! As great as that is, the real value is in the free gift-book…which is priceless! Pray right now as to who you know that needs to hear the Good News and will be blessed by receiving The Life and Teachings of Jesus of Nazareth. I can’t think of a better gift!
