HEAR HIS WORD AND OBEY = LOVE FOR GOD AND PEOPLE

HEAR HIS WORD AND OBEY = LOVE FOR GOD AND PEOPLE

The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul; the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple; the precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes;  the fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever; the rules of the LORD are true, and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb. Moreover, by them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward. —Psalm 19:7-11

            God’s Word— how much do we value what He has to say to us? The Psalmist said:

  • His Word is perfect
  • His Word revives the soul
  • His Word is sure
  • His Word make the simple wise
  • His Word is right
  • His Word causes the heart to rejoice
  • His Word is pure
  • His Word enlightens the eyes
  • His Word is true
  • His Word is righteous
  • His Word is to be desired more than gold, than fine gold
  • His Word is sweeter than honey
  • His Word warns
  • His Word kept is great reward

Let me just say this about the above passage— of all His Word is to us… it is only when we obey that these things listed above are truly understood and bring reward. God’s Word is perfect— why wouldn’t I obey? God’s Word revives the soul— why wouldn’t I obey? God’s Word is sure— why wouldn’t I obey? God’s Word makes wise the simple— why wouldn’t I obey? God’s Word is right— why wouldn’t I obey? God’s Word causes the heart to rejoice— why wouldn’t I obey? God’s Word is pure— why wouldn’t I obey?   God’s Word enlightens the eyes— why wouldn’t I obey? God’s Word is true— why wouldn’t I obey? God’s Word is righteous— why wouldn’t I obey? God’s Word is to be desired more than gold, than fine gold— why wouldn’t I obey? God’s Word is sweeter than honey— why wouldn’t I obey? God’s Word warns— why wouldn’t I obey? God’s Word kept is great reward— why wouldn’t I obey?

Why wouldn’t I obey?   May it be because I truly do not have a fear of the Lord that is clean that endures forever— a fear that desires not to disobey and to keep from evil? — “Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say?”’ (Luke 6:46). Am I calling Him Lord? Then I would be obeying. “To fear the LORD is to hate evil; I hate arrogant pride, evil conduct, and perverse speech” (Proverbs 8:13). Am I calling Him Lord? Then I would hate evil and cling to what is good (Romans 12:9). Am I obeying? Do I truly love what our Lord is saying? Oh, that I would obey and apply His Word to life, showing my love for Him (John 14:21).

 

Dear Father may I truly love what You have to say to me and obey what You say to me out of that love for You. May this be so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus. Yes, so bit it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EkunT7BYCqw
