THE STORY OF JESUS: Psalm 101
“I will be careful to lead a blameless life.” (Psalm 101:2)
In this psalm David commits himself to living a God-like (godly) life.
The key here is his commitment; he is expressing his heart’s desire.
Its not that he lived up to this perfectly, but it is what he aims for.
What is it that I am seeking, what is the commitment of my heart?
Am I starting each day with a determination to honour God with my life?
We all pursue something… but how many of us pursue the right thing(s)?
“I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me.” (Proverbs 8:17).
Ultimately, we find what we seek; we get what we want.
If we pursue life with God, we will receive eternal life with God.
But if we pursue life without God, we will receive eternal life without God.
“There are only two kinds of people in the end: those who say to God, ‘Thy will be done,’ and those to whom God says, in the end, ‘Thy will be done.'” (C.S.Lewis)
How I am living now in regards to godly living reveals what I want for eternity.
What is it that I am pursuing with my life, what is the commitment of my heart?
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, everyday I make choices, but do I consider where these choices lead. Help me first to determine my preferred destination, then take steps that will get me there!
