Dropping the Sinful Lifestyle Psalm 119:3
What’s your lifestyle like? If you profess to be a believer, then there ought to be a significant difference in the way you live. Psalm 119:3 says “They also do no iniquity: they walk in his ways.”
Who is “they”?
They have been received the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ. Praise God, I am one of the “they”. Are you?
They ALSO Do No Iniquity
Does that mean I will never sin again? If only that were true.
As a sinner saved by grace I am no longer enslaved to sin. I no longer continue living in sin or make a purposeful practice of it. I am born again of incorruptible seed. Hallelujah!
1Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
They Walk In His Ways
As a believer, my desire ought to be to walk in the ways of the Lord. I no longer have a desire to love the world or the things of the world. I now walk in newness of life. Old things are passed away and all things have become new.
2Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
It’s a new life! It’s different now since Jesus saved my soul.
If you’re life hasn’t changed, then I would certainly do as Paul said and “give diligence to make your calling and election sure:” (2 Peter 1:10)
Life will not always be easy, but one thing for sure it is blessed when I’m walking with the Lord. I now desire for the Lord to show me His ways for they are much higher and better than any of my own.
Psalm 1:1-2 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night
Praise the Lord I’ve been given His robes for mine:
His robes for mine: what cause have I for dread?
God’s daunting Law Christ mastered in my stead.
Faultless I stand with righteous works not mine,
Saved by my Lord’s vicarious death and life.
