Trust is an important issue. Politicians ask us to trust them with our futures. We depend on our money, jobs and relationships. All of these hopes will one day fail us.
The Psalmist points out that every man is mortal and will not able to save us from the one problem that will follow us after we have drawn out last breath. Sin is that problem.
We can trust God because He is the Creator, meaning He is the all-powerful rightful ruler of everything, eternal and faithful. He revealed to David that He could deliver from the punishment of sin and bring him into eternal, joyful life in God’s presence.
This way is Jesus. Only by relying in His perfect life, atoning, substitutionary death, reassuring resurrection and ascension to rule at the Father’s side may we be delivered from sin’s horrible punishment: eternal spiritual death. If you know this hope, share it.
