TITLE: Blessed and blameless

Be truthful
Psalm 119.1

Blessed and blameless

“How blessed are those whose way is blameless, who walk in the law of the Lord” [Psalm 119.1 NASB]

It is worth noting that David started this Psalm in the same way he desired to live and end his life, by being both blessed and blameless.

When we take a similar stand, publicly or privately, it is like a red rag to a bull. Satan is immediately on the attack. At that time it is always good to recall what God has said in His word and what the accuser of the brethren insinuates [Rev. 12:10] are poles apart.

For example, the devil always tries to convince us that we're no good, ...we're worthless, ...there's nothing we can do to make a difference to God, ...we keep slipping into sin and can't be used of God. But, ...no one less than God has decreed you blameless in His sight.

While in Arabia this amazing truth was revealed to Paul, and when he wrote to the church at Rome he put it like this, "Now there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus." [Romans 8.1] If we are Christians, we are blameless before God by the very fact that we are cleansed in the blood of Jesus Christ [Romans 5:9].

However, if we are blameless by our relationship with God, it is important that we continue to maintain that standard by daily walking in line with the teachings of the Bible.

It is essential that we keep our eyes focused on the word as God instructed Moses [Deut. 6:1-25]. Why? There are in our day an abundance of words and pictures specifically aimed at the eye or the ear gate, which were the twin avenues that led to the original Fall.

We will all admit that there are weaknesses in our lives, which in turn can lead to failings and nine times out of ten this happens when we are not watchful or diligent.

What is the solution? "With closest custody, guard your heart, for in it are the sources of life" [Prov. 4.23]. [David McArdle]
