A boundary is a marked limit or border of a physical, mental or spiritual area
King James Version (KJV)
1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
There comes a time in the life of any ‘serious’ child of God and follower of Christ when he/she has to make selective moves in all areas of their lives.
Selecting who to marry... (V-E-R-Y important!!!)
Who to be friends with (meaning, close confidants and regular interaction pals)
What career path to take (this is spiritually strategic and good grounds for unhindered evangelism)
What job appointments to take up (may sound unrealistic… but you need to be PLANTED where God will be glorified and you shall be ROOTED without threats)
When to take certain life changing steps
What to do and when to do them
To mention but a few, Psalm 1 verse 1 has told us in few but certain words how to remain in the love of God by observing His statutes and obeying commands given us ward in wisdom.
Building a boundary of who-to-be-friends-with to walk a good walk with God
Can this be done without stepping on certain toes? No , of course not!
When a Christian decides to ‘do the right thing’, this comes at a cost, which means that many things must GO!
With wisdom and God’s Holy guidance we can please Him in this walk with Him
Rebuilding a right temple with proper boundaries in place and walking a good walk means:
Jesus *said to them, "Did you never read in the Scriptures, `THE STONE WHICH THE BUILDERS REJECTED, THIS BECAME THE CHIEF CORNER stone; THIS CAME ABOUT FROM THE LORD, AND IT IS MARVELOUS IN OUR EYES'? … Matthew 21:42
