A WORD FROM YOUR PASTOR

Mem

“97 Oh how I love your law!  It is my meditation all the day.  98 Your commandment makes me wiser than my enemies, for it is ever with me.
99 I have more understanding than all my teachers, for your testimonies are my meditation.  100 I understand more than the aged,  for I keep your precepts. 101 I hold back my feet from every evil way, in order to keep your word.  102 I do not turn aside from your rules ,for you have taught me.103 How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!  104 Through your precepts I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way.”

 

In v104, the psalmist writes that understanding God’s Word causes him to hate sin (false way).  The more he grew in his understanding of what obedience to God meant, the more he came to hate his sin.  That’s what can happen for you and me as well!

 

The more time we spend in the Word of God and the better we understand what it means, the more we will recognize the sin in our lives, and the more we will come to hate it.  And the only way we can ever truly repent of our sin, and change our behavior, is if we truly hate our sin and truly hate the way that it keeps us from sweet fellowship with the Lord.

 

Hatred is an ugly thing, but hatred of our sin is not!  Study your Bible, and learn to hate your sin!

 

Love you all, and I will see you Sunday!

 

Bro. Chris
