Yahweh, Day 93

Day 93 Yahweh: Pure Religion

    Sing to God! Sing praises to His name.
    Exalt Him who rides on the clouds—
    His name is Yahweh — and rejoice before Him.

    5 A father of the fatherless
    and a champion of widows
    is God in His holy dwelling.

    6 God provides homes for those who are deserted.
    He leads out the prisoners to prosperity...
    Psalm 68:4-6 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)

James... in the New Testament speaks up for the character of Yahweh.... and our call to the same...

    But be doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23 Because if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man looking at his own face in a mirror; 24 for he looks at himself, goes away, and right away forgets what kind of man he was. 25 But the one who looks intently into the perfect law of freedom and perseveres in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer who acts-this person will be blessed in what he does. 26 If anyone thinks he is religious, without controlling his tongue but deceiving his heart, his religion is useless. 27 Pure and undefiled religion before our God and Father is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself unstained by the world.
    James 1:22-27 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
