FROM THE PASTOR’S HEART
“My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments, for length of days and years of life and peace they will add to you. Do not let kindness and truth leave you; bind them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good repute in the sight of God and man.” Proverbs 3:1-4 (NASB)
These Scriptures exhort God’s children to keep His commandment in the heart and live them out wherever they go, in kindness and truth. Then, length of days and years of life and peace will be naturally added to them. And they will find favor and good repute before God and Man.
Diligently learning and obeying God’s teaching and ordinances naturally invite blessings into our lives. Sadly, for many Christians, their days are occupied with the chores and responsibilities of life and neglect the Word of God. They often find themselves distant from God and are spiritually dry.
Are you allowing God to refresh you daily with His Word? If you haven’t established such an essential habit in order to grow strong and healthy spiritually, why not start today? By so doing, you will encounter God regularly; and wisdom, joy, peace and fruitfulness will be added to you.
”The law of the LORD is perfect, refreshing the soul. The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple. The precepts of the LORD are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the LORD are radiant, giving light to the eyes.The fear of the LORD is pure, enduring forever.
The decrees of the LORD are firm, and all of them are righteous. They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the honeycomb. By them your servant is warned; in keeping them there is great reward. ” Psalms 19:7-11
