In the center of the Bible is Psalm 118, which Luther called his own beloved Psalm. Verse 24 tells us: This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Our world currently gravitates toward the negative: Coronavirus, isolation, loss of income, civil unrest, etc. As Christians, however, we know that This is the day that the Lord has made. In the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League, we rejoice to be called His own, and we serve the Lord with gladness in all circumstances.
The LWML provides many resources to grow in our faith. These resources encourage us to trust that this is the Lord’s day, with the knowledge that our salvation is secure. At the top of the www.lwml.org homepage, “The Word” tab offers Bible Studies, Mustard Seed Devotions, Program Helps with spiritual offerings, as well as litanies and responsive readings in the Summer Resources section.
When we immerse ourselves in God’s Word, we are encouraged and reminded: This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it (Psalm 118:24).
