5 MINUTE MORNING BIBLE STUDY
Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.
If we take our direction from the "counsel of the wicked" we are surely out of sorts with God. Righteousness means right with God, where God is first in our lives in all things, not just some things. The truth is God calls us to be the "congregation of the righteous."
Psalm 1:5-6, 1John 3:4-7
Food For Thought
Jesus Christ was born into this world, not from it.He did not emerge out of history; He came into history from the outside. Jesus Christ is not the best human being the human race can boast of-He is a Being for whom the human race can take no credit at all. He is not man becoming God, but God Incarnate-God coming into human flesh from outside it. His life is the highest and the holiest entering through the most humble of doors. Our Lord's birth was an advent-the appearance of God in human form. -Oswald Chambers
