Here are a few nuggets for you to meditate on:
The number 5 is the number of God’s grace or goodness toward humankind. The number is mentioned 318 times in the Bible. The Ten Commandments have 2 sets of 5 Commandments..
5 toward God and 5 toward our neighbor. It's about grace relationships...
The Psalms are divided into 5 books. The 5 books of the Law are also known as the Pentateuch. The 4 Gospels + Acts = 5 books or the New Testament Pentateuch — revealing Jesus’ teachings concerning the Law and the Prophets. Love God, love your neighbor -- on these 2 Commandments hang ALL the law and prophets (Mt 22.40)...nothing else folks!
The apostle John wrote 5 books centered on the grace of God and eternal life. Five is the number of grace, and 5 x 5 = 25, or "grace upon grace" (John 1:16). So, I thank God for giving me this unmerited gift called...Grace!
Thank you Lord for my #5! Amen!
