Hello friends! I am so happy to be back again for another blog post to share with you. For this entry, I wanted to make sure I had a good amount of space to journal my thoughts.
I am working at a Christian camp for the summer, and every Sunday night, we have what we call Staff Chapel. One of the speakers for the week shares a short devotional or sermon with us. And one of them really touched me. The speaker was preaching out of Psalm 119:9-11 that says, “How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to your word. With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from your commandments! I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.”
He went on to say this: “Keep your way pure with God’s Word. There is no road to purity other than God’s Word.”
This had me thinking. How do I treat God’s Word? Do I treat it with respect and love? Do I get excited about reading it? Am I spending the time I need and should in the Bible? Am I storing God’s Word in my heart? Meditating on it and memorizing Scripture?
Well, I realized that I haven’t and still am not, giving God’s Word priority. I get back from work at night and I am tired and don’t feel like it. I prefer just reading my books. But I need to make God a priority! He is so worth it. I need to follow His ways, follow His road to living a pure life.
I guess my closing question would be this: What are your answers to those questions?
I invite us all to examine our hearts and choose God’s ways – the pure way. Let’s dig into Scripture more than before. Let’s memorize a lot more verses. Let’s pray more. All that to praise and glorify our Lord and Savior.
