Faithful Fridays is a day where christians can share there faith, a song, a bible verse, a bible study that you are working through or anything that God has put on your heart to share. You can go to Joy's blog Doodle Bug to get the rules and picture.
Last night at youth, the youth pastor was talking about how to obey God.
You have commanded your precepts
to be kept diligently.
The word precept means rule - instruction - regulation - law - lesson and the word diligently means constantly. So the verse means God has commanded His rules and we are to keep them all the time. We are also suppose to obey Him....
- Not Partially, But Fully
- Not Doubtfully, But Confidently
- Not Reluctantly, But Readily
- Not Carelessly, But Carefully
- Not Coldly, But Earnestly
- Not Sporadically, But Regularly
I know that no one can obey God like this but we have to strive to obey God everyday just like the things above.
