My Dear Brothers and Sisters, I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. The blessed word that God has given for you today, is from the book of Psalms 119:9 “How can a Man Cleanse His Ways? By taking heed to God’s word.”
From the above context we understand that we can keepourselves clean by seeking God with all our heart. David said, to the Lord “I seek You with all my heart.”He sought God and found Him. David was a man who loved the Lord. He says, one thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek. That I may dwell in the house of the Lord, all the days of my life. To gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek Him in the temple. David thus sought God and found Him. We need to desire Him, want Him, need Him above anything else, every other desire, want or need. We need to love the Lord God, with all our heart, with all our soul and mind. We must keep our hearts, pure, by hiding God’s word in our hearts. Memorize many verses from the word of God. Then the Holy Spirit will bring it to your remembrance when you need it. Then you will be comforted, corrected, and guided by the Holy Spirit.
When God’s word is hidden in your heart, praises come out of it. When God’s word is hidden in your heart, you speak of God and His word. When God’s word is hidden in you, joy flows out of you. God expects you to act morally in holiness with love and truth. Think over and over about the scripture, you have read, Delight in God’s decrees. And do not neglect His word. God wants you to live pure lives because by doing so it glorifies God. It honours him. Not just morally being good, but pleasing God because you love Him and want to honour Him. God expects you to live according to His word, to seek Him with all your heart and to meditate on the precepts of God.
If you follow these principles in your life God will be pleased with you. You will be triumphant in your Christian life. You will receive the reward at the end of your journey. And during your journey in this life you might go through trials and troubles when you walk faithfully with God. But If you continue to walk faithfully with God and stand for His good cause and maintain a good relationship with God throughout your life span then you will receive a crown of Glory. May God help you to follow these principles and cleanse yourself by the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ? Try to be pure and holy. David says, Behold I was brought forth in iniquity. And in Sin my mother conceived me. Purge me with hyssop and I shall be clean. Wash me and I shall be whiter than snow. God bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord we thank you for revealing the truth to us. That we need to be holy and pure. Wash us thoroughly with Your precious blood. Though our sins be like scarlet make them white as snow.
