Blessed is the man who doesn't walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the way of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in Yahweh's law. On his law he meditates day and night. He will be like a tree planted by the streams of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also does not wither. Whatever he does shall prosper. Author: despoina

Why do the nations rage, and the peoples plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth take a stand, and the rulers take counsel together, against Yahweh, and against his Anointed, saying, let’s break their bonds apart, and cast their cords from us.

John 1:1

The Goal of the Christian Life

By despoina in Faith and religious, Jesus, Teachings on June 1, 2016

What is the goal of the Christian life, and how do we help one another get there? One old catechism says that our chief purpose in life is to glorify and enjoy God forever. This is true. We were created for God’s glory and to proclaim his praises (1 Corinthians 10:31; Ephesians 1:11-12; 1 Peter 2:9). We exist to worship God, and in order to be genuine, this worship must come from the heart. It must be an expression of our real feelings. We adore God above everything else, and we submit to his every command.

God,give the kind your justice;your righteounsness to the royal son. He well judge your people with righteousnes, and your poor justice. He will judge the poor of the people. And will break the oppresor in pieces.

The hills bring the fruit of righteousness. He will judge the poor of the people. And will break the oppresor in pieces. On his law he meditates day and night. He will be like a tree planted by the streams of water.

Make a joyful shout to God!

Sing to the glory of his name! Offer glory and praise! Tell God, «How awesome are your deeds! Through the greatness of your power, your enemies submit themselves to you. All the earth will worship you, and will sing to you; they will sing to your name.» Come, and see God’s deeds— awesome work on behalf of the children of men.
