where I meet us

Psalm 106:4-5 (JDV)

Psalm 106:4 Remember me, Yahveh, when you show favor to your people. Come to me with your deliverance
Psalm 106:5 so that I may enjoy the prosperity of your chosen ones, rejoice in the joy of your nation, and boast about your hereditary possession.

The psalmist asks for deliverance for himself, but he also recognizes that it’s not about just him. The “I” of the psalmist expects to be part of an “us” — God’s chosen ones, his nation, his hereditary possession.

It’s okay to come to Jesus just as you are and to joy in your personal deliverance from sin and death. But it is not okay to ignore God’s purpose for delivering you. He has a plan to rescue the nations through faith just like he rescued you. He has a church committed to fulfilling the great commission that needs your help. Once you are saved, incorporate!
