The Heritage of the Righteous

In Apples of Gold, Spiritual Growth by Nina GausLeave a Comment

“Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage forever:
for they are the rejoicing of my heart.”Psalm 119:11
“… this is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.”Isaiah 54:17
“For thou, old Lord, hast heard my vows: thou hast given me the heritage of those that fear thy name.”Psalm 61:5
The heritage of the righteous
Cannot be compared
With the heathen all around us
Their inheritance prepared.
Though they labor for their riches
We, for truth and Christ, have sought
And forever we’ll rejoice
In our generous, heavenly lot.
Naught of earth can satisfy,
No estate of this world can out-weigh
What we’re promised that’s eternal.
We have chosen a better Way.
Though our culture and tradition
Mock our portion yet unseen,
We can rest with Christ’s endowment.
Redemption is our legacy.
With courage, and with honor,
Faithful men through ages served.
Holiness through persecution -
True commitment unreserved.
For the heirship of the saved
And of those who fear God’s name,
Is abundant life with Jesus
And eternal life to claim.
As servants to the King of Kings,
Be loyal to his reign.
This our heritage, and challenge:
"All for Heaven's gain."

Nina came to know the Lord as a teenager, and is grateful for the Lord’s grace and mercy in her life as she has sought to grow in her relationship with Christ through the years.

She and her husband currently attend Lehigh Valley Baptist Church and enjoy being a part of the ministries there. Along with being a wife and homemaker, she is thrilled to be able to teach music lessons to a number of piano students in the area. Poetry and meditational or motivational writings based on scripture have also remained one of her passions through the years!
