Discussion for Psalms 1

  • A disciple
    If you wish to live, keep the commandments. If you would be perfect, forsake the sin and deceit of the world, and follow Jesus with all your heart. Do you want God? He is closer than your hands and feet, and His word is near, even in your mouth! But your sins have separated you from your God, and will sink you lower than the grave, if you don't repent and turn your life to seek the Lord in truth.

    Hi my friend I would like to find God for a new life

    God gives us a progression of the downward spiral of the unsanctified life: walking in the council of the ungodly, standing in the way of sinners, sitting in the seat of the scornful. In Ephesians, God gives us the formula for a victorious life in Christ: SIT down in Christ( rest from all your labors to save your self). WALK worthy of the Lord in a separated walk, STAND true to our Calling.
  • Sharon Jones
    Thank you Lord that whenever I am standing in the way of the scornful. My angels are standing right there with me, Hallelujah!!!!
  • MICHAEL
    God's Word will also bring him glory ! And his word will be a Standard to live up too. Amen
  • Lee echols
    We must be careful to avoid the advice of evil people and not be led by those that have not given their lives to Lord who paid the price for us to have a way to eternal life. It is his example we must follow daily, and not those that seek life and approval of the world.
