Before you think I’ve become an American Tele-evangelist on an early morning Christian TV channel promising to cure you sicknesses and make you rich, hear what the psalmist says in Psalm 119 verse 1:
Blessed are they whose ways are blameless, who walk according to the law of the LORD.
This is an invitation to blessing. And there is only one way: walking according to the law of the LORD. The law, or instruction, is the Word of God – the Bible.
It gives the blessing of restored relationship with God. God’s Son, Jesus Christ, enables this blessing and shows us how to walk this way. All of the Bible, including the Old Testament law, leads us to Jesus.
So even better than curing your sickness or making you rich, God invites you to walk this way of the Word to eternal relationship with him. And it starts now.
Let’s encourage one another, with the psalmist, to walk His way. It won’t be easy this side of heaven. We need each other, and we need God’s help. As you read Psalm 119 notice the urgency and passion of prayer. We need this same urgency and passion.
In Christ, Tory Cayzer.
