Topic: Love of God’s Law [Wednesday March 29, 2017]
Text: Psalm 119:97-104
Key Verse: “O how love I thy law! it is my meditation all the day” (Psalm 119:97).
It is wonderful to have people who really love the Lord and commit the whole of their lives to serve Him. It is however more wonderful to have people who serve the Lord even in the face of great trials and afflictions. Charles Wesley Naylor, born in Athens County, Ohio in January 1874 was a man moulded in the above description. In spite of many challenges he faced, he served the Lord with an unabated love, zeal and passion.
His story is one outstanding example of how a stalwart personality can achieve happiness, success and usefulness in spite of the handicap of a pitifully afflicted and broken body which lasted for more than 42 years. The eight verses of our choice of meditation today aptly befit a life given to the study and love of the word of God. The knowledge of the word of God gives wisdom and an understanding above the cunning and craftiness of worldly allurement.
The disciples of Christ sat at His feet to feast on the Word. They became better skilled than the doctors of divinity. The best way to find the wondrous things of life is to study the Word in prayers which will make it possible for Christ to speak to us through the Holy Spirit. We become more blessed and wiser when we meditate on the word of God every day.
Keeping the laws of God keeps us away from all evils. The instructions derived from the holy Scriptures make us useful in every realm of life; they also make us superior and unrivaled in our every day commitment and endeavours.
Thought for the day: Reading the Bible keeps you away from all evils.
