Title: Guide Lines for living a blameless life.
(Psalm 15:1-5) Lord, who may dwell in your sacred tent? Who may live on your holy mountain?
The one whose walk is blameless,
who does what is righteous,
who speaks the truth from their heart; whose tongue utters no slander, who does no wrong to a neighbor, and casts no slur on others; who despises a vile person
but honors those who fear the Lord; who keeps an oath even when it hurts, and does not change their mind; who lends money to the poor without interest; who does not accept a bribe against the innocent. Whoever does these things will never be shaken.
We have to follow the guidelines from the word of God and by the leading of the Holy Spirit to be counted blameless before God. As the children of God , we need to establish good relationships with our maker, for Him to send the Holy Spirit to guide us to the right path. (Philippians 2:12-16). Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.
Do everything without grumbling. or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.”Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life. And then I will be able to boast on the day of Christ that I did not run-or labor in vain.
We must follow the principles of the word of God, walk in alignment with the Holy Spirit to walk blameless in this life. Work out your salvation with fear and trembling. In this journey of life , we can’t follow the crowd, we cannot follow our religion, we cannot follow the community. This is an individual journey, only Jesus will lead you to the right path. We have to focus our attention and devotion strictly on Christ so that we will not be sidetracked. There are things that we shouldn’t be part of as Christians.
When we engage in the same things unbelievers do, then there is no different between us and them. Lord who may dwell in your secret tent? The one who walk in blameless, who does what is righteous. That person who speaks truth from their heart; whose tongues utters no slander, those who do not accept bribes. After reading these verses of the Bible , where do we find ourselves? Can we say we are living with the guidelines of the word of God? Is lying , bribery and corruption not the order of the day? We make money today in different dubious ways. We want to be rich at all cost, without minding where the wealth is coming from . Are we not all calling ourselves children of God? No wonder the Bible says not everyone who calls Lord, lord will enter the kingdom of God.
Many people are so intoxicated with money that they don’t care if they have to kill their mother or their children to get that money, people don’t care anymore, what the consequences will be after they get that millions of dollars or whatever kind of money you use. People don’t care if they are disobeying the law of the land or God. If you get rich and is called a millionaire, and your relationship with your God is destroyed, what is your benefit out of it. Have you seen or heard anyone who has lived forever? Or anyone who has died and took their money with them? Why do you want to ruin your relationship with God for that wealth that will not last till eternity? When you live a blameless life, the benefit will continue from here on earth to eternity.
Why not make peace with God today , He will send to you Holy Spirit to be your guide. (Matthew 6:33) But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. To seek First His Kingdom means to put God in your life first , your thoughts, your activities and all your heart desires will be to Him first and you will see Him in your life in a different dimension.
Prayers: To you Oh Lord be all the glory and honor. Help me Lord to surrender my life to you. Direct my ways oh Lord to suit your purpose for my life. Come into my life and illuminate your glory in Jesus name. Amen .
