Psalm: 30


John: This passage in John could sound like a lesson on how to pick which hill to die on. When I was much younger (maybe 50 years ago) every hill I encountered was one worth dying on. Each hill was just another facet of the precious stone which will survive the purging fire (unlike the “wood, hay, and stubble” — 1 Cor. 3:12-13) As I grow older the hills to die on become like Isaiah’s description of the coming of the LORD “And every mountain and hill made low” (Isaiah 40:4) Now there are very few hills to die on – for which I am grateful. I was getting tired!

Gospel: John 7:14-31

New Testament: Hebrews 11:8-16

Old Testament: Isaiah 51:9-16
