Psalm 119:12-13 NASB Blessed are You, O Lord; Teach me Your statutes. With my lips I have told of all the ordinances of Your mouth.
As God speaks to us through His powerful written word we learn things. The things we learn we can then share with others. Sometimes it goes along with a life story. Our lives should be a walking testimony to the goodness of God. The very foundation of what we believe should be shining through in our conversations, attitudes and actions. With every step we take, our very persona should be saying we love Christ.
We are of God, we are not of this world (1 John 4:4-6) so, our way of doing things should be different than the worlds way (Matthew 12:33-37). We can’t walk the way of the world. Just because everyone else is doing wrong things, it doesn’t mean we should. The word of God says come out from among them and be separate (2 Corinthians 6:17). It doesn’t mean we will never fail or fall. The Bible says there is none perfect no not one (Romans 3:10). We are sinners saved by God’s grace (Ephesians 2:28). But we are to strive (make great efforts) to be perfect (Matthew 5:48).
Then we can speak forth God’s word and pronounce blessings from His word. We learn His word to honor Him and draw nearer to Him. We learn His word so that we can be lights of His in this dark world.
Psalm 27:4 NASB One thing I have asked from the Lord, that I shall seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord and to meditate in His temple.
You are awesome and amazing. Help us, Father, as we draw near to You, to see the beauty in Your word. May we be endowed with the ability to teach and speak forth Your word, in our own individual ways. We are all different, Lord, and we can reach someone that no-one else may have the ability to reach. So, let us be hearers and also doers, going forth shining the light and love of Jesus (James 1:22). We love You and praise You for Your magnificent work that will be accomplished through us because of the power that we have living inside of us, Your Holy Ghost power. With love forever, In Jesus name, Your children.
