Psalm

Here is something out of a book I am currently reading called 'No Holiness, No Heaven' bu Richard Alderson.
Its about Psalm 119.

Here are just a few principles extracted from the psalm; a recipe for growth in grace...

He prays God to open his eyes to see the wonderful things in God's law,
in which he takes great delight,
and which he is perpared to obey diligently.
He hides God's Word in his heart as a shield from sin,
as he meditates on it all day long.
He seeks God with all his heart
in prayer
in praise
and a concern for God's cause.
He longs to be free from sin
which he hates,
So he accepts chastisement gladly.
Strenghtened by fellowship with God's people,
he gives a bold witness to the world.

Hallelujah!


'When the law of God is written on our hearts, our duty will be our delight'
Matthew Henry

This is so good. A lot of people would confuse this and think it was legalism, but it isn't at all!

Thank you for a valuable perspective on holiness.
