Follow God's Teaching
Teach me thy way O Lord, and lead me in a plain path, because of mines enemies.
In an earlier writing we discussed God being the light of one's life because His Word serves as a lamp unto our feet and a light to our pathways (Psalm 119:105). This is to prevent the traveler-believer from becoming loss along the way neither stumbles as we travel.
Knowing the purpose of God's Word then we are encouraged to follow His teachings through His Word-the scriptures. We follow God's teaching because it leads to righteous living as all believers are to be holy and righteous like our heavenly Father. Christ our Savior took all our unrighteousness upon His shoulders at the cross and all believers rose with Christ to a life of righteousness, which tells the world that yes I am a child of God who have committed one self to obeying and abiding by His laws and statues.
Believers, we are the righteousness of Christ because of His atoning work on Calvary; therefore, we have a right standing with God the Father. Our sins have been forgiven and we as believers have been set apart from this world and it immoral values and system. Believers, we have committed ourselves to God's standards and statues.
Follow God's teaching bring this song to mind, let Jesus lead you all the way from earth to heaven. The song underscores the fact that Christ is the only one who knows the exact route to heaven; therefore, following the Lord's teaching shows wisdom.
Follow Jesus He is the truth and the light.
