“Teach me your ways, O LORD, that I may live according to your truth! Grant me purity of heart, so that I may honor you.” Psalm 86:11 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
There are four important equations in this verse every Christian needs to learn.
One is to learn.
I have met many that they will listen comment on how that is interesting and walk away or there are others that laugh at you and accuse you of being insane.
Then, there is the minority, we are the ones that put into action that which we have been taught. The wise one is the one that puts into practice in their live what they have learned.
Two is to live according to what you have learned. Now this comes in three parts. Part one is where you try to live according to what you have learned on your own.
Sometimes you succeed.
If you do not succeed then you need to try the other two.
Two is where you cannot do it on your own so you work in harmony with The Holy Spirit to succeed.
And, if that does not work then you need part three.
That is where you need to surrender and step aside and allow the Holy Spirit to accomplish the task for you.
Three is to live a pure life our is that your life may bring honour to Jesus Christ.
To live a pure life does not mean you are perfect but rather that you are living a life dedicated to Christ. And, fourth is that your life will bring honour to Jesus Christ.
The meaning of honour in this verse means: high respect, as for worth, merit, or rank dictionary.com
So, when men and or women see the manner in which you live and listen to your speech even if they do not agree with your belief in Christ they respect you and by extension Jesus.
Prayer: Please Jehovah El Deah God of knowledge. ( Romans 11:33 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation ) please continue to bless me with the most amazing tutor, The Holy Spirit.
He enlightens me to the proper manner in which to behave as a child of Your.
He helps me to accomplish this duty.
He is so wonderful.
I sincerely request this in the name of the most amazing Teacher of all, Jesus Christ. Amen.
May you be blessed with always being sensitive and obedient unto The Holy Spirits tutelage. Joseph a son of Jehovah
